    Then one of the allowed subsets in a single part of a domain name
    should be Cyrillic + Q + W (+ neutrals like numbers), without other
    latin letters.

    To repeat: it's not mixing scripts which should be detected, but
    lack of a single writing system which covers all used characters.
    The sets for various writing systems are not disjoint!
