No there is not. There is no requirement that one has to use a WordPress.com blog they have registered under their WordPress.com username. How frequently a blogger chooses to post to their blog, or if they choose not to post at all, is not of concern to Staff. Full explanation here.
The WordPress.COM reasoning is what if you had a site – nice family orientated etc. and then you deleted the name and I took it over and put content that you found disturbing and objectionable and your friends and relatives continued to visit the site getting upset at my content and thinking that you were the slime content producer.
Yes the regular names on the internet are different – I got my name because the original registrant never used it in the 10 years that they had the domain – so I got a good name from the early time of the internet – short and easy to remember.
