 Yes, but there is some edge cases.

 I tried to submit new plugin with dropins which are located in
 `includes/dropins/dropin-name.php` and faced this issue. (still not sure
 it's an issue or not)


 Example: Jetpack has modules and some of modules has own header (like
 sharedaddy).  If they were try to submit initial review today it wouldn’t
 work too.

 IMHO, ideally looking root directory and one level depth could be better,
 like WordPress doing.
