    I don't think these names are generally available, I haven't even heard them mentioned in any other domain site or listed on any WHOIS checker.

    Has anyone else found another example of it? (other than evie.uk :) ) nice try

    It's because it's owned by a public body. See mod.uk

    There's a few knocking about. Registered I think before Nominet took over. ai.co.uk was suspended last year, but was taken out of circulation when it dropped.

    ds.co.uk

    The only possibility of the .co being dropped is if the Nominet membership vote for it which seems like turkeys voting for christmas...until you take a closer look at the weighted voting system Nominet use. Schlund and 123 have enormous weighted voting power over the the other members. If those two see a commercial advantage to their operations by dropping .co then it might just happen over our collective heads

    bl.uk and british-library.uk were registered long before Nominet started and before the naming group decided to use the second-level co.uk. But were allowed to carry on using the domains.

    (This is what I read somewhere ages ago.)
