Somebody fixed this, thanks. It confirms Jeff's Firefox result, the
"raw" Unicode result confirmed by <http://josefsson.org/idn.php> is:
U+0BFE and U+0BFF are unassigned Unicode points in the Tamil block;
at the moment xn--cocacola is a "fake A-label". Sadly XN-labels do
not tell me if mixing Tamil and Telugu will be always utter dubious.
Different ??-- introducers identifying selected subsets of relevant
scripts could be an idea. In other words, meanwhile I found UTS 46
and its IDN FAQ. This was a brave attempt to rescue IDNA2008, but
I'm not convinced that any "transitional" labels containing various
IDNA2008 DISALLOWED Unicode points "go away", why should they, ever?
