There were a few items coming out of the UTC meeting in regards to IDN.
1. We will be adding to draft UTR #36: Security Considerations for the
Implementation of Unicode and Related Technology
(http://unicode.org/reports/tr36/). In particular, this will include more
background information and a set of specific recommendations for both
browsers and registrars; both to be refined over time.
2. The UTC has authorized the editorial committee to make updates to #36
between UTC meetings, to allow for faster turn-around in presenting both
background material and recommendations. We will try to incorporate ideas
presented on these lists and others, so suggestions are welcome.
3. The UTR had for some time recommended the development of data on visually
confusables, and we will be starting to collect data to test the feasibility
of different approaches. In regards to that, I'll call people's attention to
the chart on http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr36/idn-chars.html, that shows
the permissible IDN characters, ordered by script, then whether decomposable
or not, then according to UCA collation order. (These are characters after
StringPrep has been performed, so case-folding and normalization have
already been applied.)
