So this type of string should be avoided - but the restriction should be
minimal, and strings that do not cause a problem should be allowed.

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
<http://www.аму1.il/> www.аму1.il causes a major problem.
