    There's a lot more to "being supported by the Internet" than the set of
    characters permitted in domain names.

    There's also a significant controversy surrounding the ability of some
    evil person to register "paypaɫ.com" or similar, using a letter like
    U+026B that most people in the world aren't aware exists, and using it
    to dupe innocent consumers. People are running around screaming that
    internationalized domain names are evil for allowing these characters,
    and that Unicode is evil for including them in the first place. This
    "security" thread is an attempt to work out the best solution for all.
