Dear Ben,

Some of these may be of interest to Macquarie editors because they are of
later appearance there as opposed to here.

What is more intriguing to me is the relative transparency of some of the
longer phrases, especially given that the proposers are dictionary people
(from whom I'd expected less transparent items).  Examples in this latter
category include:

biologically harvested wool

mortgage stress

digital rights management

bushfire survival plan

climate change believer

climate change denier

Nevertheless, it's always interesting to get the down-under point of view.
