I agree with John. It makes good sense to maintain two lists  
List A 
an Inshore list that includes the mainland, Torres Strait Islands 
and even Tasmania and any area within the 200 NM fishing limit. 
List B 
an Offshore list that includes the above plus all the territories  
as well 
Next we have to agree what taxonomy to follow. Surely it would  
be the Christidis and Boles RAOU checklist as the standard reference 
for Australian's? How many birders in Australia are members of  
the American Birding Ass? and How many have even heard of Clements? 
I think all the larger ornithological bodies have already committed 
to this. The NSW FOC and QOS certainly have.
