a. the GNSO policy for introduction of new gTLDs states that there is not precedence for becoming an operator of an IDN TLD. In other words, just because you are operating a TLD today it does not mean that you automatically become the operator for any translated version of that TLD (being IDN or ASCII, but mostly discussed in relation to IDNs).

b. in the process for introduction of new gTLDs there are various objection procedures available. While they are not implemented completely yet you might imagine that the .tld registry operator might object to someone else applying for the IDN version the .tld.
Great find Bill - finally a decent "summary" from ICANN. (a) and (b) are the most important for me - they pretty clearly show that nobody has a cat in hell's chance of wrestling .com away from VeriSign in any major languages ....

As for aliasing, yeah, seems to me ICANN need to sort through lots of issues before they commit to any "aliasing standards" - so don't expect any new versions of .com in the next two years, that's for sure.
