I think it could be useful feature -- but only if it is configurable, perhaps
even with a list of domains to search if .com fails.

The last version I saw didn't appear provide the functionality described -- but
with that functionality, if it is required that the host have only one 'part'
(ie. no periods, so it couldn't look like xxxx.yyyy), then there is no problem
with adding new top-level domains (there should never be top level domains
which are also specific sites).  Also, by the description and the code that I
saw -- the extra domains will only be tried if the first attempt fails, no?
