Although Internet domain names may be getting longer or more complex as Web sites creatively squeeze into the crowded ".com" address space, most single-letter names like "a.com" and "b.com" remain unused. That may soon change as the Internet's key oversight agency considers lifting restrictions on the simplest of names.In response to requests by companies seeking to extend their brands, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers will chart a course for single-letter Web addresses as early as this weekend, when the ICANN board meets in Vancouver, British Columbia. Those names could start to appear next year. Associated Press 11.28.2005, 02:06 PM

Sounds like a good idea, however I don't think it will actually kick off, you won't want some porn site registering A.com? Little kids the most, spend some time of their online life randomly guessing URLs.
