    I agree with Erik van der Poel's suggestion to detect mixed writing
    systems (the several scripts used by Japanese should cause no concern)
    rather than mixed scripts, so maybe the setting by default should be to
    allow a single writing system in SLD, TLD (not necessarily the same),
    etc., a more refined setting for advanced users and rare occasions would
    allow a user-selected list of writing systems (and thus scripts) to mix
    in a single part of an URI.
