[idn] Error in IDN eamples for testing
One of our engineers took a look at the IDN samples for testing, and found a
problem in the data. Apparently some of the UTF-8 is illegal (using 2
three-byte sequences for a supplementary character).
The following are the offending members of structure in Appendix A of
draft-josefsson-idn-test-vectors. The data claiming to be UTF-8 is actually
"Surrogate code U+DF42",
"\xED\xBD\x82", NULL, "Nameprep", 0,
"Larger test (shrinking)",
"\xaa\xce\xb0\xe2\x80\x80", "xssi\xcc\x87""tel\xc7\xb0 a\xce\xb0 ",
"Larger test (expanding)",

For companies like Ben & Jerry's, Bang & Olufsen, Nestlé, L'Oreal, Kookaï,
etc. the IDN will be much more significant than the introduction of .biz and
.info. Let's make it significant in a positive sense, rather than a
significant new anti-cybersquatting expenditure.
