Throwing this out on the table for discussion...
In the sense we (the dns operations industry/community) see ".com" and can say that out loud today (whether it's native tongue to you or not). Ane when we see "xn--fiqs8s" we can call that the "IDN for China (simplified)" But what will we call "xn--unup4y."?
That's "you1xi4" in pinyin (I'll omit the characters as they might not render in all email readers) which translates into English as "game" (as in to "play a game"). The TLD visual is rendered in simplified Chinese script (I hope my terminology is clean).
I'm picking the example that I have a shot at parsing, I can't deal at all with Cyrillic or (I believe) Arabic. I doubt there are any or many people on this list that are multilingual *enough" to deal with all of the scripts we will see.
So - what will the dns operations community use to name these TLDs when there are issues with the new gTLDs that are in the xn-- "category" ?
