    Those domains would be worth so much money. Pretty cool.

    No reason why you couldn't use them - just the same as any other number of character domain. Just reserved by ICANN and whomever.

    I'd imagine 1.com, 2.com.. and so on would get crazy amount of spam like asdf.com

    They are all just registered by VeriSign and held, there is only a select few that we're taken before VeriSign got them.

    PayPal own's x.com

    And z.com is owned by Nissan. If they let go of these they'd be locked as well.

    I believe the same thing is happening with two-character domains. If they are dropped, they are reserved by netsol/icann.
