I have a Chinese email address 小山@电邮.在线 and it works between DataMail/XgenPlus and gmail. It also works partially with other systems. So EAI is happening and it is happening now. DataMail offers free email addresses in 12 different languages https://www.datamail.in

So myself and others are already using unicode@idn

I wrote about it shortly after I registered a Chinese email address.  See https://schappo.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/chinese-email-address.html

We now need input type="email" to accept unicode@idn

I have had my Chinese email address since Jan 6th of this year and have been using it since Jan 6th. Encouraged by me, some of my students also have Chinese email addresses. Since then I have been waiting for input type="email" to catch up and accept unicode@idn

I therefore think fixing input type="email" to accept unicode@idn  should be a priority task

this issue appears to be stalled.  I think we should move JcK's comment in https://github.com/w3c/html/issues/538#issuecomment-292811143 to this issue, and explain that there's a chicken-and-egg problem here and that the HTML spec is reinforcing the problem by specifying something that prevents Universal Acceptance moving forward.
