RFC 2396 puts more severe restrictions on host names in URLs:
The host is a domain name of a network host, or its IPv4 address as a
set of four decimal digit groups separated by ".". Literal IPv6
addresses are not supported.
hostport = host [ ":" port ]
host = hostname | IPv4address
hostname = *( domainlabel "." ) toplabel [ "." ]
domainlabel = alphanum | alphanum *( alphanum | "-" ) alphanum
toplabel = alpha | alpha *( alphanum | "-" ) alphanum
RFC 2732 extends the syntax for IPv6 addresses, but otherwise still
restricts it to alphanum.
draft-masinter-url-i18n-04.txt doesn't currently address the issue.
