Bare TLD resolutions

mentioned in the Scotland thread... it seems there are two major potential
points of possible collision:
1) User network uses "fake" TLD which is no longer fake, and local
resolver server blows it
2) User network blows it worse, and tries to resolve a monocomponent name
off non-local servers.
The latter would seem to be avoidable by making sure that *DNS resolution
of bare TLDs always returns NXDOMAIN*.
Is that a requirement for a TLD?
If it isn't, does anyone know of any domains dumb enough to actual
return something for a lookup on the bare TLD?
Is there actually *any* good reason why a lookup on a bare TLD ("com.")
might return a valid record?
And what about Naomi?
