Interesting. We could also draw inspiration from most Web search
engines. They work that way: If there is no composed character in the
query, they search "accent-insensitive". If there is at least one,
they switch to "accent-sensitive".

Accent-sensitive is easy to do. Accent-insensitive would require multiple results, which DNS doesn't do.
