Would it be possible to have something like this (additional pref), but
only for searches that contain (at least one) dot? This would be useful
because most commonly, searches without dots are not used as domains
(except `localhost` which is handled separately), while searches
containing dots could be commonly used as domains.

Also, I don't know if it's just for me, but Firefox takes longer to
"resolve" (try resolving but then fail and search instead) domains
without dots (`for example `test`, which takes few seconds before
redirecting to search) that domains with dots (for example `test.aaaaa`,
which is redirected to search almost immediately).

What about whitelisting whole TLDs/suffixes? And along with this, API
that allows extensions to modify the list of whitelisted TLDs would be
quite useful, for example for extensions that provide support for
domains like `.eth` or `.bit`.
