If we do that, it will be only for domains that already contain one . at 

For instance, typing http://intranet/ should append the search names, if 
necessary. But typing http://kde.org/ or http://www.kde.org wouldn't.

I doubt many people use two-level domain names without the suffixes. But 
this is just a guess.
