Cyrillic domains: IDN variants are “not applicable in our case”

But in the case of the Cyrillic script, we consulted with Dr. Andrei
Kolesnikov, who is the CEO of the Coordination Center for .ru, and he
has advised that IDN variants are “not applicable in our case”. So, we
have that advice. Now that doesn’t mean that that is necessarily a true
statement, but that’s the advice we’ve received. We will publish that on
the website and we look forward to comment on that and advice on
that from the community.

Q: Naela Sarras: Yes, first one. Good afternoon, my name is David Cohen,
speaking in my own capacity assuming that Mr. Kolesnikov is
correct and in Cyrillic there is no variant issues/difficulties – is this
and/or other working groups plan on allowing the languages and/pr
scripts who face no variant issues to proceed to the next step.
(confusion/ASCII similarity or whichever the next step is
determined to be)




A: Dennis Jennings: A very interesting and very good question that I don’t know the
answer to because I’m not sure that that is a full and complete
statement about the Cyrillic script that will be accepted by
everybody. If it is, it’s most likely that the next step will be to look
at the confusability between similar scripts. But we’re essentially
looking for advice on first of all the variants, and then moving on
to confusability. But the point is well made and I don’t have an answer for that particular question. Do you want to take the
second comment from…?

Cyrillic is not exclusive to Russia.

No, but you would need to be a complete plonker to assume that Verisign is going to opt for something that is only used in Macedonian.
