Coming soon .xxx TLD
.xxx, a sponsored Top Level Domain (sTLD) targeted at the adult industry, has been given the initial go-ahead by the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). The first application by ICM Registry in 2000 was rejected but ICM seem to have managed to convince ICANN this time round.
ICM Registry will be responsible for the technical aspects of running the TLD. A non-profit organisation called the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR) will be in charge of regulating the domain. It is not clear at this stage exactly what level of regulation there will be, but it is expected to help in ensuring that unsuitable materials does but material involving or reaching minors seems to be a primary concern.

In my opinion, it would be a bad idea.
Now companies and ISPs can easily block off all domains with .xxx and restrict the number of users to these adult sites.
I am pretty sure that they wont want that.
