I've now heard back from James (he was away), and he's raised a good  
point about whether the WMF or WMUK should have control of these  
domains and the other UK domains for the WMF's trademarks. I've been  
in contact with Mike Godwin about this; discussions are ongoing.

With the website, the limiting factor is still getting the wiki set  
up, as I expect we can get the domain names repointed fairly easily.  
There's been no progress with the request yet, though.
