Sounds like it.

The video is not new; it is from the Singapore meeting (June 23). There is a transcript at transcript-applicant-guidebook-questionnaire-23jun11-en.txt.

I hadn't noticed any of this until 555 pointed out the video.

Here is what Sara Langstone of Verisign said (according to the transcript):

----------------------

>>SARA LANGSTONE: Yes, thank you, Fred. Well, obviously the
introduction of IDN new gTLDs represents a huge opportunity, and it
explains global accessibility for Internet users as well as providing
a wide range of opportunities for registrars and registrants.

And I thought that I would highlight some of the issues using
VeriSign's own experiences as we've been going through some of the
thought processes and preparing for potential IDN.IDN applications.

Obviously VeriSign has been offering IDN at the left of the dot for
a number of years. But, of course, it's not a truly international
experience yet because everything to the right of the dot is still in
ASCII.

So VeriSign decided after much thought that it didn't make much
sense for us to just do a translation of dot com in different
languages and scripts. In most cases, it wouldn't make sense for us
to do that. So we actually decided that what made more sense for us
was to look at phonetic transliterations of dot com and dot net at
the first level. It is really more about how it sounds. But even
after we selected that strategy, there can be issues with a blanket
approach.

So to give you an example, in the Russian market, the phonetic
transliteration of "dot net" is "dot нет" which means no. That is
not a good choice for us.


My point here is even once you have decided upon an IDN strategy,
there's no size-that-fits-all kind of approach. And you need to give
it careful consideration.

You'll also notice for those of you that are interested in applying
for an IDN new gTLD, there are a lot of references to things called A-
labels, U-labels and Punycode conversion tables. And I think in just
starting to explain that, first off, you need to understand that the
DNS, it only supports ASCII, the A-label. It does not support the
IDN or the Unicode U version. And so what you need is you need a
conversion tool, which is a Punycode conversion, tool, which will,
basically, convert the IDN component into something that the DNS can
understand.

Now, it is a tremendously complex and technical issue. And you
really need to know what you are submitting and why. You need to
ensure compliance and, of course, you need to remember that one size
doesn't necessarily fit all cases.

Just real quickly as well, IDN variants are not currently supported
in this release. And I'll just give you a quick example of that.
Within ASCII character sets, lowercase A maps exactly to uppercase A.
They're interchangeable but not so with all scripts. And so the
opportunity is working on a solution for this issue.

And until a solution for this issue has been found, then there are
no IDN variants supported within the first round of the new gTLD
application.

Interesting dot Net traffic is one of the bright spots in Russian at the moment.
