Steven also suggested to check with an attorney to be sure.  That's the 
way it feels to me, though.  First come first serve commonly dictates 
site registration situations these days (if the common variations are

that government is looking for additional paperwork to enforce, i.e. a 
business cannot be a non-profit unless it uses a .org domain.  These 
things are difficult to control, clean up, after the fact.
