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.
