I don't have much to add to my previous e-mail, apart from this.

Program code and IDNs are very different. Actual end users have to  
interact with IDNs so it makes a lot of sense not to allow effectively  
identical names to be registered as that would open up all kinds of  
spoofing issues (apart from the spoofing issues IDNs already enable). End  
users do not deal with program code.
