Personally I do not care much either way, but allowing e.g. names with non-Western characters or characters with accents is fine with me, as long as the matching stays ASCII case-insensitive and the registered form is ASCII lowercase. I think HTML 5 allows any string that does not contain whitespace characters. (But I suppose that clashes with the discussion of what the registry should look like and whether URIs are a good idea here.)
