Yes, as long as the default is $_.

./method doesn't use a default invocant. It calls method on the current
invocant, which happens to be available as $?SELF: that doesn't mean it
defaults to $?SELF. The term "default" is inappropriate if there is no
way to specify anything else: $object./method is still invalid syntax.

That's good, because it's different from all other method syntax anyway,
because it does not have any left hand side -- not even implied.
