RSSAC Statement on ICANN's Proposed Next Steps for IDN Deployment in the Root Zone

RSSAC has been asked for a statement on ICANN's proposed next steps for IDN deployment in the root zone.

Policy discussions are continuing and are clearly out of scope for RSSAC. RSSAC takes no position on what the contents of the strings used to instantiate IDNs in the root should be, or how many there should be within a factor of 2-5 times the current size of the root zone, or what the duration of the test should be, as long as DNS protocol is followed regarding length of labels, permitted characters, and so on.

Why is seemingly kept a secret?

ICANN always speaks about IDNs as if they are something off into the future. Of course what they refer to is the idn.idn (unicode.unicode), have been registered by Verisign since 2000', and are functioning on the internet and in use today. Now that IE7 is out, all computers running that can resolve

I an curious why with all the recent IDN publicity, idn.idn tests etc. it is NEVER mentioned by ICANN or Tina Dam, Head of IDN program that,,, etc. etc. are online and resolving fine on the internet today?
