This isn't the case. It's the same as generic IV - you don't need to make this assumption for the standard properties of IV to carry through. If you are looking for increased efficiency, though, you could consider a variation on a procedure recommended by Wooldridge in his 2002 book, which is similar to what you propose below except that you use the generated variable as an _instrument_ for the endogenous regressor. That way, you don't have to bootstrap.
