Keeping in mind that Telstra may have fixed things since the last time
I looked (last december), the biggest problem with that is that
Telstra's own name servers take a long time to update (24 to 48 hours),
no matter what the ddns SOA says. Other Telstra broadband customers
won't ever be able to find you.
I doubt if Telstra have fixed this, it has been a well known problem
for many years.
