I like the #1 pretty much but also other abbreviation of "Foundation for
Free Multimedia" (like FreeMM) are already registered domain names.

Thus I think we have no other choice than to look at the others but
please let us learn from that and check the other votes for domain
availability first (if not already done but I cannot see).

Maybe a more clear description of the other options incl. corresponding
domain names and abbreviations would also be welcome for all of us to
decide to object for a second vote or not (no I do _not_ object by
saying this).
