I have got requests from browser programmers whether it is possible  
for them to know what equivalences the registries have used at time of  
registration. So that the browser when accepting written input (on a  
keyboard) can do similar mappings etc that is happening at time of  
registration. Context dependent mapping. If nothing else to possibly  
minimize phishing etc while still ensuring no false positives.

I.e more and more requests I have got regarding mapping at time of  
lookup is to know how to ensure the mapping at resolution is the same/ 
similar as mapping at time of registration.
