Arabic script IDN working group (ASIWG)

Old news at this point, but for those who still need it, some additional reassurance from a local market.

15. ASIWG supports ICANN's proposal that variant strings be either allocated or
blocked for registration for the same applicant, following the logical
arguments and requirements set forth in the ICANN IDN Table document.
However, we suggest that the variant name(s) applied for should be allocated
by default,
unless it can be clearly demonstrated that activating the variant
form would cause unavoidable confusion. For at least two countries (Iran and
Pakistan), variants are needed for expressing the country name as the TLD.
o A request for <.iran> (in Persian) will use the Persian 'YEH
(U+06CC)'. However the Arabic 'YEH (U+064A)' will produce a
string that looks identical to the Persian one, and may well be used by
someone using an Arabic keyboard.
o Similarly, <.pakistan> (in Urdu) would use the Persian ‘KAF’
(U+06A9), but will look identical if written using the Arabic ‘KAF’
(U+ پاکستان.) ( 0643 vs. . .(پاآستان
Allocating variants to the same applicant and requiring the applicant to take
steps to avoid user confusion (such as aliasing) is the safe and prudent course
of action.
