Another potential roadblock cleared.

No impact at all could be detected. All involved systems behaved exactly as expected.
I really hope that this didn't come as a surprise to anyone at ICANN.

What a great shock. IDNs don't break the DNS, really incredible stuff. That was the whole point of them existing as ASCII, rather than upgrading the DNS to use Unicode. IDNs as ASCII xn-- should have been a 2-year project, done and dusted, but for various reasons, it s looking more and more like a 15-year job. Shame on ICANN.

Agreed. I suspect if you had been a fly on the wall, you would have seen a lot of involvement (stonewalling) from the US Department of State. There is a reason why most of these meetings are closed-door.

First apologies for duplication, I missed the original thread.

Yes, this is precisely why nobody trusts the US to govern the Internet!
