Re: The missing piece of the puzzle

As always with IDN there are a lot of pieces and a lot of puzzles.

First of all IDN.IDN will be a good thing in any language since it makes a half-finished product complete.

Which .IDN strings are the best ones? Obviously the ones which are already typed and used for branding websites.

Will they be number 1? It depends on Verisign's choices and the competion by other extensions such as ccTLDs and other IDN gTLDs.

Russia: Strong ccTLD with the disadvantage of beeing managed by a corrupt registry. .ДЕТИ shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Arabia: ccTLDs are pointless for obvious reasons. But .Arab in IDN could be a real contender.

China: This is the most interesting part since there's no translit and .gongsi was gifted to cnnic. Still many Chinese might want the original just like they don't want any fancy handbag quite as much as the "Louis Vuitton" one.
