Re: New Internet Draft on registering IDNs

Well, my point is that the "Allocation all labels" policy could be a bit messy for the owner. Therefore it would be proper to have some sort of information about that, for example:

If the input label contains several characters that have equivalents, the owner could end up having to take care of large number of zones. For instance, if DIGIT ONE is a variant of LATIN SMALL LETTER L, the owner of the domain name llllll.com will have to manage 64 zones.

What happens when the Allocation all labels policy is used and the input label contains several characters with equivalents?

E.g. if there 6 base characters with one variant" each in the input label, will the owner of the registration have to keep 2 raised to 6 = 64 zones?

Exactly right. If this wasn't clear from the draft, please suggest some wording to make it more so.
