Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

(In reply to comment #12)
> Currently, websites using <input type='text'> get UTF-8 e-mail addresses so
> they obviously know how to handle them.

I assure you that's not a given. I would expect that any scripts I've written,
if given non-ASCII e-mail addresses, will either crash or complain. I haven't
tested other systems but I wouldn't be surprised to find similar results.

As I said in comment 10: If my assumption is wrong, I'm happy to change the
spec. File another bug for that *with evidence* that typical servers won't be
screwed up if they na´vely pass IDN to their mail subsystems.
