On ABN applications

"We applied, electronically, for an ABN for a new superannuation fund and 3 weeks later I rang the ATO for a follow up and was told it takes 28 days to get an ABN, so I mentioned that for a tax agent the ATO could look it up after 2 weeks and was told:
'That was obsolete at the beginning of this year, please call again when 28 days are over and we may be able to escalate the issue.'
Once again, thank you very much ATO, why should we matter?"
