I'm not worried. :-)
Two other comments on this.
1. There will be many cases where there is no user (at least at run
time) to admire the FQDN on her screen. FQDNs will for example be
in automatically generated XML documents that are used to trigger
access in a Web Services environment.
Ok, in v2 I'll make this "the FQDN or textual representation which is
presented to the user if applicable".
2. FQDNs are now internationalized, so they cannot be assumed to be
ASCII strings at all times - in some contexts they will be Unicode.
In other words, the address is transformed from Unicode to ASCII and/or
the other way around at some point. I think we can safely ignore this
for the purposes of multihoming, at least until we've reached the
lowest level of detail.
