| IDNA does _not_ work, because Unicode does not work in International
This argument is bogus, and always has been. If (and where) unicode
is defective, the right thing to do is to fix unicode.
That is, it isn't the principle of a single encoding of all characters
that anyone is objecting to here, it is that some specific characters
have been implemented incorrectly ("merged" with others) as I understand it.
I'm not competent to decide how important this problem is, and this is
not the forum to debate it anyway (so please don't reply just to tell me
how significant the problem is, nor why). Do that with whoever maintains
If you can't get enough of the unicode experts to agree that there's a
problem that needs fixing, then by definition, there isn't. That's just
the same way as the IETF works (whether the unicode group actually work
this way or not - if not, they should...) - that a few people believe
something is broken is irrelevant if they can't demonstrate that well
enough to sway others to agree with them.
So, stop arguing against unicode (10646) - just fix any problems it has.
