Just so that nobody gets frightened and accuses Unicode of making
security problems for their script -- the above comment only means
that for all (of the millions of) websites example.com the owners of

Now the question is, is there only one owner of .com? ICANN? Who?
If this entity chooses to enforce confusables (does it?) then
*wherever* a domain is registered it cannot be confusable with an
existing domain name? To be precise, if my old example of ಅರಗ.com is
