Neither do any of the browsers I use, which resolve http://bi/ as well
as http://dk./ just fine.  Whatever problem unqualified TLD names
might present to web browsers has been around for a long time and the
world hasn't come to an end.

The problems with zillions of single-registrant TLDs are more
social and economic than technical.
