    No. No they are not. They are just confusing the issue even further...
    No-one knows what a .au domain is.

    The direct registration option will lose website and email traffic to the corresponding .com and .com.au domains. That doesn't sound great to me.

    The level of actual usage will be low just like all the other new tlds.

    With auDA’s confusing choices more will choose “none of the above” and go with .com instead.

    Yes. Yes they are.
    They are just simplifying the issue.
    Everyone knows what a .au domain is
