Currently the Transfer (Change of Registrant) policy is:

It looks to me like 3.1 a)(ii) could be applicable here, as long as
a Deed of Assignment was made between AUUG and the new organisation,
and the new organisation was eligble to register an org.au domain

However, auDA is currently working on changing the policy to allow
registrant transfers for any reason (after a panel recommendation in
December 2007, http://www.auda.org.au/news-archive/auda-13122007/)
