GET * was what I was thinking.   The point of well known being to retrieve a representation of a resource describing the host.

It's probably moot anyhow.  The first advantage over /.well-known/ - no potential for namespace clash - has been dealt with anyway.  The second advantage - not taking control of URI space away from site owners - is a minor thing only.
