I want someone to say what scripts they want there. I have together  
with some people added Greek, Latin and Cyrillic. I have so far not  
heard any other suggestions.

I think Harald (specifically, he even came up with a suggested use  
policy) and also John and also me, in different words, said that what  
we (all of us, including you) do NOT want to happen is that something  
that have ALWAYS end up getting the NEVER derived value. Or at least  
minimize that risk. Moving things from ALWAYS to NEVER will  
definitely create a situation where already registered domain names  
are no longer valid. Etc etc.

Of course it MIGHT happen. Also with latin, greek and cyrillic. But I  
personally see that risk very very very very small. Enough to have  
latin, greek and cyrillic there.

Now give me names of other scripts that are as stable.
