Re: [idn] length restrictions on IDN label
U+AC00 x 56 times (in my previous posting) is a valid label
conforming to RFC1035 ?
and its equivalent ACE label (of 63 octets ) is a valid label ?

IDNA contains brand new length restrictions for 8bit labels which
obsoletes RFC1035 ?

Exactly right. It seems like you have answered your own question!
In case I'm missing something, where in any of the IDN documents does
it indicate that the length restrictions are in number of code points
instead of number of octets?
