I for one agree. The ABA counts Lord Howe Island and Norfok Island in with
What they do not do (and I think this is sensible in zoogeographic terms) is
include every Australian Protectorate
notably Christmas Island and Cocos-Keeling Islands, which are included in
Indian Ocean); and Macquarie & Heard & McDonald Islands, which are included
in South Polar.
This is merely a way of inflating one's Australian list.
