    If we get to ignore current practices in entering the languages into
    the computer and just look at current usage in IDNs, the easiest
    solution would be not allowing any letters out of ASCII. We can't make
    up a new way for people to enter their language just for IDNs; if
    they're writing text using the ligatures, they'll expect to enter URLs
    with the ligatures.
