No typing of any latin letter in my previous example, consider that NAME is in 
Arabic, instead of Greek - if there is browser completion, it should work.

It solves the issue that one can type in just NAME in a local way and get to 
NAME.com and read stuff in NAME script.

Of course it doesn't solve the issue of wanting a complete URL in a non latin 
script, but who said completion would ?

I was just showing a useful case for second level IDNs and therefore that it is 
not irrelevant to look at its penetration.
