Because it's only a contraction for SS in German. There are debates ongoing, but I can't see this ever opening without a sunrise.

Well if IDN had been invented in German, by German for Germans, then I guess you would have got it, but basically with a good deal of collaboration with the Japanese, and Koreans, it was invented by the Chinese for Chinese.

ICANN? Wel,l they did not even exist when this thing was initially conceived, in fact ICANN had not even been conceived. The whole thing has been rudely foisted on the unsuspecting Americans by a lot of scheming orientals, and whilst ICANN is changing, it still run by Americans for Americans. And even the ICA doesn't want to change that!

I think you will find that the holders of prime german domains are the ones strongest against this. That's why I suspect it will never fly without a sunrise.
