Reading this discussion, it seems that perhaps Verisign is just letting a normal sunrise take place before offering a sort of matching opportunity to IDN.com owners. It could look a lot like the .Porn matching program. Or Verisign might have a trick up its sleeve to keep matching domains set aside for unlocking at some time in the future.
I'm not prepared to do a google search on ".porn matching program" (seems NSFW), but from what I recall, the idea was that holders of .xxx domains were given the chance to register the equivalent .porn domains, before General Availability, but after Sunrise. If this already took place, it implies that this is something that ICANN doesn't object to.

Anyway, the incentive for Verisign to provide a one-time grandfathering opportunity is that they can afterwards say, "We tried", rather than "We lied".

P.S. The domainnamewire.com article has been updated to include a new content-free statement from Verisign, and some more thoughts by Andrew.
