I downloaded Opera 12 pre-alpha and IDNA2008 doesn't seem to be in here
either... correct?

Another question around bundling and blocking. Is the recommendation
here that all domains containing an "ss" should be considered for
bundling and blocking? So for all new domain name registrations that
would use U+00DF ( ß ) LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S, the registry should
protect existing registrants where the new domain name would map to the
existing domain name under IDNA2003 rules. Or at least give them a
heads up like DENIC did with their short sunrise period.

The same would apply to cases where the registration of other deviation
characters would map to existing customer domain names under IDNA2003.
So e.g. in Table 1's examples from UTS46, the owner of
should be protected from someone trying to register
At least during the transitional period.

I understand that registries don't have t bundle/block if they don't
want to, but protecting their customers is advised.
