On a tangent, under IDNA2003 rules, shouldn't registration and resolution of the punycode form of "faß.de", which is "" be illegal since the nameprep process would mapp the eszett to "ss"?

Once the registries (of that support the 4 special characters) have adopted bundling/blocking policies, then it will be possible for client software to safely move off of the transitional approach. So it is really dependent on the registries' behavior. Different clients may have different thresholds for when to move, depending on their estimation of when enough important registries have  adopted bundling/blocking policies.

 For example, when all Registries *and* all client software have moved to exclusively support IDNA2008

"All client software" doesn't work, unless you have a coordinate switch date, which people concluded was impractical.
