Interesting question. As we could also noticed, functions of nameprep,
prohibit, and normalization can all be performed by registration policy.
the point of asking this question?
Anyway, from our point of view, nameprep mechanism helps to make sure
international registries follow a global set of rules and it becomes the

Since the WG insists on a client solution based on Unicode, without on
solution, we have no way to depend on the courtesy of internationalized

This is also interesting. As far as I know, TWNIC has their social
