I have read the report. It's totally boring. It tests things that
everybody already knew would work, namely the use of labels starting
with xn-- inside the DNS. The report itself says than no problems
whatsoever were expected, and of course, none were found.
It's a lot of time and enery just to disperse some unjustified FUD
(fear, uncertainty, and doubt).

Regards,   Martin.
