Sure. Though many ALAC files outside of the iTunes microcosm use the ".alac" extension.

The only reason why Apple adopted the ".m4a" extension is because the ALAC codec, which is not related to MPEG-4 at all, is nevertheless muxed in a MP4 container. However many MP4 players can't decode the ALAC codec.
