It's worth noting that, unlike IANA's decision many years ago to use
an external authority (ISO's list) to determine what a valid ccTLD is,
in recent years ICANN has walked right into the trap the IANA avoided
in the last round.  For with the IDN ccTLDs, ICANN seems not to have
adopted an unambigious external authority to which it can point to
say, "That's how we come up with these names."  

I would look forward to the first nasty discussion about the "correct"
spelling of an IDN in the root, except that, of course, it's already
