might be a valid reason for it - but we all know that's not going to be

All of the recent TLD domain names have just become one more domain that a
company needs to register, but it (almost) never means that they will not

If you want to book a flight with Qantas do you go to www.qantas.travel ? Or
do you just go to qantas.com or qantas.com.au ?  Does anyone actually
