Seamless user experience, that's what is needed. The rest is just
against the idea of i18n (i.e. a hack), isn't it?
You can imagine if browsers implement such behavior the popularity of
domain names that mix characters from different scripts is going to be
very questionable. Which is, again, discriminating.
Moreover, someone on the list have already said that most users don't
even pay attention to the messages that appear on the screen. The
model is as follows: "Message appears. - What the ?.. I don't want
this. - Close immediately without reading."
Clearly, not a solution either.
