What does "language encoding" mean here? This is unfortunately very
imprecise and misleading wording.
I presume the intent here is for each *character* encoding in which it
will be registering names. Any character encoding could support multiple
different languages (since even ASCII alone can support a number of languages) --
and I don't imagine the multilingual certification evaluation wants to
end up heading down the rathole of trying to determine whether
"beethoven.com" is to be an English certification or a German certification,
