anybody with two working brain cells should be able to figure out
that IDNs won't be able to be displayed with software that was
designed and written before IDNs existed. even if IDNs were bare
UTF-8, they still wouldn't be able to be input from software
that predated IDNs because such software wouldn't do the appropriate
canonicalization/normalization and wouldn't know how to properly
compare two IDNs for equivalence.
but you know this already. you just choose to ignore it so that
you can berate people who don't want to rewrite all applications to
suit your whim.
