I especially like this quote:
"Only Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana, and LDH, which all are usually
used in Japan, are allowed to be used in Japanese JP domain
name. Characters that are visually similar to ASCII alphabets,
i.e., Cyrillic character 'a', is not allowed; and thus IDNs that
are similar-looking to ASCII domain names do not exist under .JP
"Therefore, it will hardly happen in Japanese JP domain name that
ill-willed websites use domain names with characters visually
similar to those used in existing ASCII domain names."
Since kanji are allowed how long will it take for someone to register
a domain name containing variant that differs only in a stroke or two?
I hardly think that restricting 'homographs' to existing ASCII domain
names insulates them from anything.
