All you need is a basic understanding of the Australian system of 
government. A federal bureaucrat does not have the authority to make 
decisions about the licensing of a State owned dataset. But to confirm 
someone could contact DNRM and ask the question.

That's putting it politely. There is a rather toxic stratum of 
correspondence on talk-au around the period of the license change.

As I said earlier this is a can of worm and I have been deliberately 
leaving the Contributors page alone and just keeping an eye on what 
people are importing into OSM.
