Re: Idns to break up internet? Fresh off the press.

I would also like to add this article for review.

While ICANN dithered, groups in China and in Arabic speaking countries went ahead with experiments in IDNs for Chinese and Arabic, and set up experimental parallel root zones with names in the local character sets. These experiments worked (no surprise, Unicode and punycode are technically sound) and now those roots are the roots that everyone in those countries use.

WTG, Icann't may have single-handedly destroyed their own authority. Let's just hope they can pull this off in the bottom off the ninth.

Now I see the dire emergency for them. It doesn't take a world poll, or UN action, these countries will just do this themselves.
