The Landrush phase is provided for businesses that do not hold a registered trademark for a particular name, but wish to protect their brand. This phase gives them the opportunity to register the .co variation of their existing domain, though owning the existing domain is not a requirement.

The .xxx would be suitable for adult material, similar to .edu for education and .gov for government bodies. The appeal has caused controversy for both those for and against the introduction of the TLD.
The idea of .xxx would be to implement a way for those who wish to provide access to pornographic nature on the web and also make it easier for those who don't wish to view explicit material to block the websites. This would also make it easier for search engines to block .xxx websites.
