Yes, considering your plans for the foreseeable future is definitely a good idea. Trademark registration process can take a long time, so you can start securing your future classes ahead of time. That way, you can avoid unpleasant surprises where you later discover competition in your intended class, necessitating changing all your plans.

However, it's worth mentioning that adding classes to your application will result in extra fees. While it would generally be cheaper to apply in all your intended classes at once, some brand owners choose to apply in future classes when the time comes and split the expenses.
