But I am not as sure. It seems possible that .κομ could be blocked because of visual similarity to .com.

Or, in a more likely scenario, Verisign might be forced to choose between .κομ (Greek) and .ком (Russian), because the two are visually quite similar.

Verisign wouldn't have to choose if it owned both brands and simply accepted the similarity. If verisign doesn't claim all translations (which is likely) the smaller languages are likely to get sacrificed.
