The current version of the validator seems to have some half-way
IDN (international domain names) support. For an example, please see 

My guess is that the conversion to punycode was correctly made before
resolving the host name, but that punycode was not used is the Host:
field of HTTP/1.1. Although that's not explicitly written down anywhere,
that's how it works (at least with deployed servers).
