I think just throwing these requirements out is a bad idea.
Zone files or not, I think it is important that administration
does not become a lot more complicated for iDNS than for DNS.
So I suggest keeping a general requirement about administration,
and use the zone files as examples.
Also, even if not everybody uses zone files, if they are in wide
use, somebody/some doc should actually propose how to extend
i18n to them, because a nice protocol with hopelessly fragmented
implementation/administration is not desirable.
