Reality is the lovers of Coon cheese are in the minority with this situation and the wider community expect to see the word Coon removed from the Vocabulary in Aus and any jobs lost won't be taken into account.If by wider community you mean the majority, I would beg to differ. I'd be fascinated to see some sort of "head count". Apart from this forum/thread, every time I have heard this type of topic (ie name changes) discussed amongst the varying groups of people I associate and interact with both at work and socially, the overwhelming majority I have witnessed first hand have the "what a crock of crap" or "who gives a fork" attitude. Do I need to choose my friends, family and work colleagues more carefully?
In fact the surname will probably disappear over time as well in Australia imho.
