It seems that Swedish regulators have decided to extend the requirement of not calling yourself a bank to the registration of domain names.

Hopefully there are no blood banks or anyone with the last name of "Banks" that might want a .SE domain. Here is a Google translation of the demand issued by the authorities to the .SE registry.
