    And indeed IDN (Internationalised domain names) does so.
    Basically, IDNs aren't private, or, if you will, the established
    agreement for IDNs is not to interpret PUA characters at all,
    except for prohibiting them, as are surrogate code points
    (when not properly paired in UTF-16), non-characters, and
    code points that weren't assigned in Unicode 3.2 (the latter
    will change with a new version of IDN).
