We don't want to expose IDNs in submitted values or to script, because a lot of
e-mail-related stuff doesn't know about them and might break if it hits them. 
That's the point of punycode, after all, compatibility.  IDN-aware stuff can
always explicitly convert from punycode to Unicode for display -- and I'd bet a
large sum of money that the overwhelming majority of client and server
applications are not IDN-aware, and if they work with IDNs it's by accident.
