Devanagari issues report (Important/Partially identical for all languages)

4.4.3. PAYMENT ISSUES
With the creation of multi,lingual labels and also variants generated from each, certain
issues of payment arise:
1. Will there be a fee for providing and registering Variants
2. Will there be a fee for a registrant desirous of removing a variant granted to him (issues
of cyber,squatting)
3. Will there be a concession for providing the registrant a label in multiple languages ?

________________________________

Specifically, a registry a registry may choose to
establish a policy wherein all possible variants will behave the same (return the same response
in the DNS) at the TLD level of the DNS hierarchy. Although this can work in many cases at the
TLD level, the DNS cannot enforce this policy on the delegated second,level domain names in
the TLD. This can have a dramatic affect on the user experience.

________________________________

Secondary to this issue, a registry will need to have a policy specifying how it will deal with
variants of prospective domain name registrations. Consider the following questions.
1. Are domain name variants to be considered equivalent, for an appropriate definition of
equivalence?
2. If variants are equivalent, will all be registered (including DNS delegation) when the
first one is presented? Will variants be reserved (does not include DNS delegation) and
only registered upon request?
3. If variants are reserved for registration upon request, who is permitted to request
registration? The owner of the first registered variant or anyone who requests it?
A critical technical issue to the question of equivalence is the implications to the DNS as
described in the DNS Technology and Operations Perspective. The DNS behavior cannot be
enforced beyond the level in the DNS hierarchy at which the policy is defined. This can have a
dramatic effect on the user experience.
Finally, from a business perspective, a registry will need to have a policy specifying how it will
charge (or not charge) for variants of registered domain names.

Re: Devanagari issues report (Important/Partially identical for all languages)

The case against transliteration of .com:

.com is to commercial, since first three letter of English meaningful
word
•  In English one can easily correlate the short forms with the type of
activity / content the domain may have.
•  Transliteration can not always be acceptable for following reasons.
•  Some scripts may not have characters necessary to represent the
sound of the words
•  E.g Tamil does not have “Bha” bharat will map to parat
•  Associating the transliterated IDNs with real world will be
difficult
•  May convey entirely different meaning in other languages /
region.
•  In Indian languages short form does not exists.

•  Example word "PAL"
•  In Tamil -> பல means Milk
•  In Marathi PAL -> पाल means Lizard

• Another solution is to translate the TLDs in different
languages.
• However, since the TLD do not convey the language
information, it is likely that a translation suitable for one
region may not be suitable for other (because of regional
translation requirements).
• This issue is more specific where the scripts / languages
are shared across borders.
