Subject: [idn] Future difficulties because of IDNA
> From the discussions I have had on the namedroppers list I see

> 1) Additional overhead.
> This is because of IDNA, a UCS client MUST first query the server

> Without IDNA the client could send the query without knowing

> 2) DNSSEC will probably be much more complex to handle due to
