Unicode/Punycode Pair

I stumbled upon http://㯙㯜㯙㯟.net which is owned by http://www.boethin.net

If you have clicked on the link you will see an IDN converter.

There is though something interesting going on that is less obvious. 㯙㯜㯙㯟 is the unicode form of the punycode xn--domain. The chars 㯙㯜㯙㯟 are in Unicode CJK Unified Ideographs Ext A. These are uncommon chars and the online dictionaries I have tried do not have definitions for them.

Therefore the Unicode/Punycode Pair 㯙㯜㯙㯟/xn--domain does not have evident meaning for Unicode but has evident meaning for Punycode.

So that had me thinking whether or not there are any Perfect Unicode/Punycode Pairs which have evident and related meanings in both Unicode and Punycode.

Well I believe I have found one such Perfect Pair: 毁/xn--row

毁 = to destroy / to damage / to ruin / to defame / to slander
xn--row (as in quarrel)
