    If there were a list of homographs maybe they could be treated as aliases
    for the purpose of URLs and domain name registration - so IRAQ.COM with a
    Latin Q and IRAQ.COM with a Kurdish Q would point to the same address.

    Registering a name containing a character or characters in the homograph
    list would automatically get you all the variants too.
