FTA: "Leslie Phillips, the head of marketing communications for the consulting firm Fairwinds, said that both Amazon's and Google's involvement is a sign that these new extensions will succeed."

I think it's just as likely that they're hedging their bets because they don't want some random copyright-troll-esque company buying up, etc. and causing a bunch of confusion and brand damage in the hope that Google and Amazon will pony up heaploads of money to have the domains transferred to them in order to stop the shenanigans.
