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.

I'm sorry.  I don't really want to bash Google, since I think that they 
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.
