The current version of the validator seems to have some half-way
IDN (international domain names) support. For an example, please see 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fr%C3%A4ksm%C3%B6rg%C3%A5s.josefsson.org%2F

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).
