You probably will regret it, Julian.  But it's certainly an issue worth
giving another run!
Believing that the two major organisations (Birds Oz & BOCA) serve somewhat
different interests and needs, but nonetheless supporting the desirability
of a single birds/birding organisation in Australia (for the reasons you
have given, and others), my preference would be for an amalgamation in which
the current Birds Oz structure took the primary responsibility for the more
"scientific" aspects of birds and birding in Australia, while the current
BOCA structure(s) continued to serve the more social and shared birding
needs of birders - with a unified structure for conservation, fund-raising,
etc.  In my lifetime...???  I wish!!
