The conspiracy theorist inside me says that this is part of concerted effort to make all forms of alternate superannuation arrangements, other than union industry funds, too difficult for the average person or for professionals to advise.

Whether this is by ineptitude, ignorance or intent of the current Lib Gov is anyone's guess.
