Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

Well Arabic and Urdu (and Farsi) will probably use the same extension, so I'm not sure if these need to be listed separately. That might also be the case for Chinese and Japanese as well.

Why do you think that?

Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

My understanding is that .com is (or can be) transliterated exactly the same way in Arabic, Urdu and Farsi as كوم. I'm not so sure about Chinese and Japanese, but is it possible that Kanji will cover both?

Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

Japanese will be in Katakana, pretty much everyone here agree on that. So Chinese and Japanese will probably not have the same translit.

However, if what you say about Arabic, Urdu and Farsi using the same code points is true, well yes it will be covered by the same application. The application could also cover variants if there are any.

Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

Alpha, I think you should restrict the vote to the TLDs that haven't expressively been mentioned by Pat Kane already. So I'd take out Arabic.com, Japanese.com, Chinese.com, Hangul.com, Hebrew.com, Cyrillic.com.

Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

Frankly not sure what to expect, but if the idea is that Japanese type them in with the utmost ease then Hirigana would be a more natural choice.

Of course it may well be that they Nameprep to the same thing, as they pretty much are the same thing. Really no different than our upper and lower case.

Of course if you stick to Romaji purist doctrines, it will stay as .com.

They look alike, but not the same code/punycode. Also, I am not sure if the Farsi version will go that one. It is not widely used from what I know.

Okay. So as a variant, would the Urdu transliteration be granted to Verisign as part of an application for Arabic? Or is it likely to just be blocked?

Re: Which transliterations of com/net will Verisign apply for?

I doubt blocked. I think they may all be 'mapped' to one another, if that makes sense.

ARABIC | URDU | FARSI -- all different character sets, let's just say for .com, yet visually similar but you can do <arabicword>.<farsicom> and still end up on <arabicword>.<arabiccom>.

This was proposed I believe for the ccTLDs. I was just pondering earlier today about some Farsi words that are the same Arabic punycode character sets... what happens with these? I believe they may also let you have the option to unlock whichever? For example, you own ArabicWord.com/net IDN and you have the option to select which tld you want to enable?

SELECT TLD UNLOCK:
- Arabic Com
- Farsi Com
- Urdu Com


Maybe?

Sounds good to me. I hope ICANN reach the same conclusion.

Looking at some of the reports today, it appears that variant strings aren't being dealt with this round, with ICANN's working group's report on possible solutions not due until later this year. So I guess we'll have to wait some time yet to see what they might do with Urdu, Farsi and other variants.
