Securing virtual territory for the kids

I was look­ing over all the domain names I have reg­is­tered over the years, and remem­bered that I had reg­is­tered full name domains for each of my chil­dren.  Some­day, the log­ic went, they will want their own web sites, and they will be grate­ful that I had the fore­sight to grab these while I still could.

A sound idea.  But what about secur­ing their user­name rights for web pages, web apps, and web ser­vices.  Should I grab AIM accounts for all of them?  Should I go ahead and reg­is­ter a Flickr name (i.e., Yahoo!) for each of the boys?  Gmail?

What do you think?
