No. That's one of the things missing from the SPARQL protocol. There's  
no way to check if a URI is a SPARQL endpoint URI except by sending a  
test query.

Semantic Sitemaps [1] are designed to solve this, among other things.  
But the standard is still under active development and not yet widely
