Yes, Google sees it as: first come, first serve.

That would be nice for them to do, but it misses the point.
Just because someone isn't using something doesn't mean you have the
right to use it without their permission. It probably violates
trademarks for most domains.

are good for XMPP. I hope that the developers and operators of the
service don't take offense. However, I vehemently disagree with the
business practices of Google Apps.
