Despite the question mark at the end of this, I'm afraid that I can't
tell what the question is.

.MUSEUM has not participated in the Fast Track process in any manner

I cannot see any heading in RFC 5226 under which the ICANN IDN
Guidelines fall. They are not protocols nor otherwise maintained as an
RFC, and the IANA does not participate in their development.
