An example of major problem could be the logical string "www.ALEF5.123.il" 
which would be displayed "www.5.123FELA.il", which is quite confusing, and 
subject to several interpretations.

The restriction is too restrictive and unrealistic from the point of view 
of RTL users.

It is certain that not allowing these names will cause problems.

I would like to see strong evidence that a string like аму1 or www.аму1.il 
causes a major problem.
