When Kim mentioned we put together an "ask" of ianacann root updates, if we
("the community") were to request a root zone list be started for
announcing... one opportunity we have would be to ask for fields from what
the applicant furnished from the applicant guidebook in question 14, which
would contain the language and English meaning.
This would result in what you are describing.
This additional information is present in the new idn gtlds but
the idn cctlds follow a different process.
