Re: IDN Status update for 2017

Another positive is that RFCs are going Unicode.

RFC 7997: The Use of Non-ASCII Characters in RFCs https://tools.ietf.org/pdf/rfc7997.pdf

RFCs are currently restricted to ASCII, but with RFC 7997 we should see a transition to Unicode RFCs.

So, for example, RFC authors will be able to write Domain Names such as http://இந.இந்தியா instead of having to write ascii domains only.

When RFC authors write about EAI (Email Address Internationalisation) they will be able to give real examples such as 小山@电邮.在线
