ICANN and Verisign needs to confirm and ensure .сом in Cyrillic is also treated as a variant as it is 100% visually confusing and Cyrillic .сом in English sounds like .som so aural confusion is also possible.
пример.com + пример.сом + пример.ком = Same domain/Registrant.
To avoid phishing issues .сом in Cyrillic can only exist as a Cyrillic IDN variant.
