WWWWWTF?

Perusing the interwhatsit just now, I popped the words 'Thanet District Council' into Google and this came back as top of the pops. When I clicked on it, however, I got one of those 'server not found' messages, and upon closer inspection it transpires that the Uranians have invented their own version of the World Wide Web - the W World Wide Web. Well, they are from another planet, I suppose.

What the extra W stands for, lord knows. Would anyone like to hazard a guess?

Could just be an e-typo (even Google is not perfect). Here is what I get when I googled it:
Thanet District Council Welcome to the homepage of Thanet District Council.
www.thanet.gov.uk/ - 23k - Cached - Similar pages

Quite a few pages have that extra W tagged onto them, these days.
I'd suppose the idea is that it then offers the chance to sell a whole new array of web addresses.
Should we be looking to make a fast buck by snapping up all the popular names like wwww.tesco.com and wwww.microsoft.com, all over again?
