I probably used crappy English.

In Swedish one say "discover" also when a. one get a question on whether emoji is ok, and b. find that the IDNA standard is not allowing emoji.

I.e. even if one just do a check in the Unicode tables for a code point and see it is not PVALID, it is still "discovered" that it is not PVALID.

Regardless of how little "research" it was.

Key point is, as you write Andrew, that it is definitely not ICANN that have made the decision. ICANN refer to IDNA2008.
