That seems rather different, since .XXX actually exists, and barring 
political surprises, there's no reason to doubt that it will be accepting 
registrations soon.

All those others like .MUSIC are pure speculation.  Nobody knows if or 
when ICANN will start accepting applications, nobody knows how long the 
process will take if it starts, and nobody knows which applications might 
succeed and which ones might fall afoul of one of the many conditions and 
evaluation processes.
