Even some of the DLLs created in our company use several dots (but for other reasons). And maybe there are even more valid use cases. So I think there should be no such limitation for target names in a build system. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah. Also, the entire .NET framework and many third party .NET assemblies as well. So this limitation won't fly long term; let's find a different way to solve this problem. How about using \0 as a separator? :)
