Has anybody thought about domain names in Mongolian? The domain name 
system cannot absorb "spelling variants" other than entering these as 
separate domain names one-by-one.

Even if we assume that most users entering a certain domain name enter 
it with the correct "spelling variant", that still leaves the 
possibility for spammers to register other "spelling variants". This can 
only be avoided by registering all variants (if done 
(semi-)automatically, this is called "bundling"), or by "blocking" 
incorrect variants when the correct variant is registered.

Regards,   Martin.
