Course not. :-)
Notwithstanding that, globally resolvable valid DNS names *with no dots
in them* are going to break a fair amount of software which assumes that's
an invalid case, and that is in fact a *different* situation, not triggered
by the expansion of the *generic* gTLD space.
So, like DRC, your response isn't to my actual point. :-)
