Doesn't this Looks absurd ? You claims seem against IDNA drafts.
My current argument is based on IDNA draft section 6.
Section 6.1 describe how "Entry and display in application". It makes no
mention of UTF-8 as can read. Which paragraph are you referring to?
Look into Section 6.1 and the IDNA architecture figure, please.
The authors themselves may clarifiy the reading of the section,

6.1 Entry and display in applications

specification or negotiation of charsets, labels can be encoded in any
charset allowed by the protocol or document format. If a protocol or
document format only allows one charset, the labels MUST be given in
In any place where a protocol or document format allows transmission of
the characters in internationalized labels, internationalized labels
SHOULD be transmitted using whatever character encoding and escape
mechanism that the protocol or document format uses at that place
