Re: Mozilla China Office Opens in Beijing

The whole point is that it was only ever an ill-conceived scheme for "protecting" a lot of cultural biggots in North America! Deep in the bowels of Mozilla there must be those that appreciate this and clearly see its irrelevance in non-English version of the browser.

If they do this for Chinese, which they seem to be signalling, it will get rolled out in all non-Latin version at the very least.

For this new thing, though, they either have to blindly whitelist .com or not, they can not whitelist it after making a guess as to which language the domain name is written in. I'm guessing that there will be discussions with the mozilla headquarters if they whitelist .com, but then they headquarters may not care so long as it's only the chinese who are subject to homograph attacks.
