I think this is excellent, but there is one point which might require
As Shawn has mentioned, client authors need to know how much time must
elapse before they can/should start switching their software to
implement IDNA2008 rules.
Would the best approach here to be for IETF/ICANN to canvass the key
affected registries in order for us to determine the value of a time "S"
which represents the upper bound on how long they think it will take to
run the "sunrise" process? After that time, clients can begin to switch.
Other registries, while retaining full control over their own
operations, would know that if they did not run sunrise processes which
completed inside time S, resolution problems of various sorts may result.
