I am very pleased to see a document like this show up at this stage in
the IDNAbis process.  One of the contentions behind IDNAbis is that
the rigid approach IDNA took was not conducive to cultural variations
and that more leeway should be left to language-centric domain
registrar policy.  To have an example set of such language-centric
policy to reference during the IDNAbis debate improves that debate and
supports the general direction IDNAbis has chosen to follow.

I think this spec effectively overrules the advice the IDNA bis WG is providing on this topic and thus should not be published. However, the topic is very complex and and I if Lisa feels this needs to be published this way, I'm not blocking it.
