	Part of the question is answered by your first remark. If some mail readers
	(and other applications!) can't render/show "游戏", then we're back at
	using the ASCII and therefore the ACE name when discussing technical issues
	/ inquiries.

	This may seem western-centric, but I doubt that Arabic readers (or others
	not using roman character sets) are in a better position to discuss issues
	around "游戏", for instance.

	I may suggest using both the ACE + the "real" representation. Shouldn't be
	necessary in 2013, but...

	".xn--unup4y/.游戏 validates, while .xn--80aswg/.сайт doesn't"
