Does anyone in the Link braintrust have any info about why AuDA is now 
requiring an ABN in order to register a .au domain of any sort (except 


Some domain registrars (at least one I know of) are now going back and 
requiring those who have had one for years to now pay $119 to make the 
addition of the ABN info.

Is this a money grab by AuDA, the domain services, or a real need? Why 
this change for all but id.au domains? Is this a Tax Office regulation
