    Well, the registry could use your algorithm, slightly modified. If we
    can subdivide a label using hyphens, let's call the subdivisions
    "sublabels". The registry would have a piece of software in place that
    checks to see whether any sublabel consists entirely of homographs. If
    there is such a sublabel, the software could either reject the
    registration or send an email to the administrator to have them manually
    check the label later.
