    Where's the question of precedence? As I understand it, confusable
    mappings go from higher codepoint to lower codepoint, so it's just a
    question of folding -- something like case folding.

    అరగ ಅರಗ అರగ ಅరಗ (you'll have to look at that via UniView to get the
    difference) will all fold to అరగ (all Telugu) if I am not mistaken
    (provided the appropriate Confusables.txt entries are present) and
    given that mixed script domain names are (almost) prohibited, whoever
    registers whichever first -- whether all Kannada or all Telugu -- will
    get precedence, even though in internal processing the Kannada
    codepoints will fold to Telugu.

    @ the techies here: I hope I got that right...
