On what basis would we reject http://www.google as an invalid URL? http://arts.museum is a valid URL, as is http://travel.travel. I don't see how we could reject the google one as invalid except by keeping a list of valid top-level domains, which I don't believe we want to do.

For the record, #16656 discusses the same problem in the context of the urlize template filter. No decision yet, but there's a strong consensus on not maintaining a list of valid TLDs.
