IDN.IDN unofficial aliasing still possible?

Just wondering, since owners of idn.th domains got their corresponding idn.idn names at no charge with the courtesy of Thnic with the intention of keeping the integrity of the .th name space intact . Will it not be possible for Verisign to implement something similar for .coms? Why would ICANN come in the way of Verisign when it didn't for a cctld like .th?

If the will is there, is there anything in the ICANN framework that would prevent Verisign from automatically registering all the about to be launched idn.coms and .nets in idns (as a secondary sunrise after the TM holders got their names) on behalf of existing registrants at no charge? This would bypass ICANN's policy on not allowing matching names to be reserved for later activation while guaranteeing that the maximum number of matching domains are registered to preserve the integrity and ensure better non-fragmented trustworthy idn.idn in .com name space for years to come.

If the above scenario is possible and Verisign is willing to forgo some extra income in exchange for possibly even more successful launch with higher income from new registrations for more IDN domains, the market uptake may be more substantial with the domain name space confusion being mitigated from idn.com and idn.idn having different owners.

i don't know if that would be possible. I think rules for cctlds and gtlds might be different.

If you believe that could be done I would contact Verisign ASAP and voice your concern before it is too late.

Thanks 123. I am not sure if I just send a random message to Verisign if it will even reach those in power. I believe some of us here have been in touch with the likes of Pat Kane. Perhaps those with contacts might get their attention better.

Any one else with any other thoughts on this?
