Google Apps blocks .tk TLD

Obviously Google blocks using Apps service for all domains, that end with .tk.

.tk is top-level domain of Tokelau. They offer free domains for anybody. You can go to and register your own domain and simply set redirection. Or, if you are more advanced, you can use their DNS servers to set records to route to your site. You can also set MX record for e-mail. 

I used .tk for e-mail in connection with Google Docs. Few months ago my .tk domain stopped working. When trying to log into my admin account, I get "This account has been disabled".

Trying to set up new google account on this domain also fails. All you gonna get, is this lousy excuse: 
Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later. Why did this happen?
Of course, there is no unusual traffic from my network. Trying to set ANY other domain works fine.

Looks like I'm going to set my e-mail on Windows Live. (Windows Live works well with .tk domains)
