In short, no. Longer answer: I'm assuming by 'non-writing transaction' you are meaning a transaction which has been abort() or doom() -ed. If you mean instead an 'empty' transaction that has no actual changed data, but which still calls 'commit()'; then the answer is still 'no' and the reason is simple - against which database would the note be written?
