Agree. I'm not interested in personal attack.

I'd like to learn more experiences from you. :-)

There are differences among name conversion, unicode conversion and
DNS identifier conversion.

At least the IMEs used in my last examples do not depend on the
frequency of personal usage. If you do try these examples, you should
be able to see the same screent shot as mine.
This is one of the design points for IME. Other IMEs may depend on
personal usage, but the demonstrated IMEs don't.

Hope IDN friends do really understand the problems.

I think IDN is also complex. :P
Hopefully, we don't expect language-level conversion or complete
Unicode conversion, what we need is identifier-level conversion,
for identifying domain name rather than solve all the conversion issues
in Unicode or human-space.

Is it a personal or organizationall attack?
I'm a researcher and I do not stand for TWNIC.
I expect a global unique IDN, not a fragmented DNS nor Internet world.

Personal attacks again? :P
