Concerns and considerations[edit]

As this is an issue still being "decided upon," (for many years, apparently) there are many factors to be considered. Here are a few just thrown out to be edited around and made to look pretty.

  • IDN.COM vs. IDN.IDN, important issue as IDN.COM is already available.
  • Compatibility
  • Punycode
  • "branching off from the *main* internet" (various POVs)
    • Who Owns The Internet
    • The UN Resolution from meeting in Tunisia
  • Localization
    • Transliteration of COM NET ORG vs. culturally significant TLD names of the languages' own choosing.
    • Right-to-left formatted languages such as Arabic and Hebrew
