To compete with, and the other privately-owned names.
These two have been going for over a year. Yawn.

I assume you just happen to be offering hosting of these names as well. If
so, and a customer ever moves elsewhere, will you delegate names within to the  new host (which may well be one of your competitors), and
how much would you charge for delegation alone?

What arrangements have you made to ensure the names will continue if your
company should ever go out of business?

These are the key reasons why I always advise my clients to get an
"official" name, usually within or .com. Less important ones are
that your name is less memorable and that your name gives away your ISP to
anyone in the know.
