There is only one AU comment that relates to legal issues (which is just a
broad statement), as Standards Australia have taken the advice of ISO, and
has excluded legal issues.

However, this does not necessarily exclude legal issues from informing
Australia's vote.

That said, given that you keep raising it, what legal issues do you believe

The AU group will be looking at and considering international comments. We
pushed pretty hard for that.
