Change field name restrictions for dots (.) to be consistent with 2.8 tools behavior

      http://docs.mongodb.org/v2.6/core/document/#field-names states that field names cannot contain dots; this is no longer true (dots refer to subdocuments). The new behavior is that field names:

      a) cannot contain consecutive dots e.g. a..b
      b) cannot contain leading dots e.g. .a
      c) cannot contain trailing dots e.g. b.

      not necessarily in that order of importance.
