I agree. When it comes to top generic domains, few buyers ask for stats. So, we might not see a $1MM IDN domain sale since the once IE7 is up and running, the monthly growth of revenues will be so high, it would be hard to value that IDN. But some IDNs will be worth that much, that's for sure.
Asking a local domainer who missed the boat on IDNs in his language if IDNs are valuable is like asking your wife whether your mistress is pretty.
