IDN gTLDs and DNS

I just ran across this article: the_design_of_the_domain_name_system_part_viii

Quote:
The DNS technical community has been wrestling with the question of how to make two DNS trees "the same" for quite a while. ICANN now has a process to issue non-ASCII top-level domains in addition to the traditional two letter codes, such as .香港 in addition to .HK. In many cases, the new domain is supposed to be the same as the existing one, for some version of "same". After going through the arguments several times, I came to the conclusion, which I think was shared by most of the participants, that nobody has defined the sameness desired in that case, but whatever it is, it's unlikely that even with some improved version of CNAME or DNAME that the DNS could provide it.
Any comments from our DNS experts?

Not unlikely at all. .香港 registrants get the same domain in .HK and then more, because they get also all the variants. Why is this unlikely, if it is already happening?

I'm far from being an expert, but I'll make a guess anyway. I believe the .HK/.香港 aliasing is done by keeping the two registries synchronized, rather than by doing anything sophisticated with DNS.

Don't let ICANN convince you something complicated needs to be done with the DNS. They did that with IDN, and in the end all that happened was that the punycode was put in the Root the same as everything else. All aliasing involves is the addition of additional records as DNAMES.

But you are correct until that happens it down to synchronisation of the A records at the registries.
