As far as domain squatters, I have seen nothing that suggests that
those who want to confuse users lack creativity and the means to pick
names that are just as good as the ones on your list, e.g.,
openoffice.fm.  So I'm not sure we actually prevent anything by
registering these domains.

Of course, the easy decision is simply to say "yes" to everything.
But unless the ASF gets free registrations, this is a cost that will
need to be handled on an ongoing basis.
