It is probably worth it, because the registrar expenses are not very 
high (probably 5-10 USD per domain) but this shows commitment to end users.

Of course this cannot be totally effective, since there are thousands of 
domain name variants that can be used and "squatted" for commercial 
purposes by people external to the project; but the issue of 
"unofficial" download sites is very important to users and, if the 
project manages to secure at least this symbolic list of domain names 
and redirect them to the official site, it shows that it cares about a 
problem that has nothing to do with development but that users perceive 
as important.
