I don't think that's really feasible. There are plenty of sites out
there which don't have *any* URLs without query strings:

In an ideal world they'd clean up their URLs, but this ain't an ideal world.

The .self proposal seems reasonable, though it might as well just go the
extra few steps and become openid.canonical that was discussed before
but dismissed.
