UNregulated Converter with MIC2171?

Can this part be used as a NON-regulated isolated converter?
We’d like to simplify and reduce parts-count, if possible. We DON’T need tight voltage-regulation.
Our requirement is:
Input: 12V to 24V
Output: 5V to 10V out, 1A
I don’t see an UNregulated circuit in the datasheet.

    It's a fundamental feature of how these chips work that it will be regulated.
    You might possibly be able to omit the compionents on the COMP pin, but that's just a pair of very cheap SMD parts that are negligible compared to the inductor, diode and bulk capacitor that are essential to its operation.
