Final Charter for Working Group

The IEA BOF will discuss internationalization of email addresses.
Although domain names in email addresses (everything to the right of
the "@") are already internationalized by RFC 3490, the mailbox name
(everything to the left of the "@") is not. The BOF will consider
various proposals that would allow users to have internationalized
mailbox names and how they would work with existing Internet mail.
