    The system does not need to be foolproof I believe, it simply servers to
    help the user identify the most obvious problems (a setting could be
    made available whereby the user could say that he wants to be warned of
    mixed scripts across parts of the address [he about never goes on a non
    English site for example] or allow them [he does]).
