    I've looked at the proposal before and - quite truthfully, in spite of the
    fact that I sympathize with the goal - I'm not convinced at all that the
    end result could ever achieve any concensus.

    This is a Unicode terminology question. Is the "internationalised
    (non-ASCII)" equivalence always acceptable in Unicode people's mind.
    For example, I do not understand "internationalised" as excluding
    ASCII. The IETF IDN routines do not exclude ASCII domain name. I just
    want to know if there is a common definition or not. If not that
    might create misunderstanding or unnecessary problem we can still
    correct since the NWIP is under circulation.
    Thank you
