It is more complicated than that. To keep your trademark, you have to  
actively protect it. That _might_ imply that you MUST register your  
domain name. And in some legislations it might even be the case that  
you do not know until after the fact whether trademark holders must  
for example a) register a TLD, b) register in every TLD that is out  

It is not only a question on whether "they feel the need" for it.

This has been rised a number of times (although late in the process)  
by for example International Chamber of Commerce.
