For another realistic example, imagine a hypothetical Russian site,
XML-äîêóìåíòû.com (which means XML documents). Now, the "XML" string
is obviously in Latin script. No spoofing intended.
Suppose I *want* to visit XML-äîêóìåíòû.com (which is not unlikely).
My browser should *not* alert me. Never.
The only solution to this seems to be for the registrar to check each
new domain name by hand (not necessarily with mixed scripts).
