No, smoke will continue to be blown and nothing will happen.

Wow. that's a lot of reserved names ICANN
ICANN recently updated the
list of reserved second level domain names. Those are names that you won't be able to register in any of the 1500 or so new domains they're planning to add. There's rather a lot of them, currently 629.
