I am sorry, as many, many others ones : I am one them.

As a Registry the only thing I can do is to register what people 
require. On which legal ground could I do otherwise ?

Since I have _no_ understanding of what you are _really_ about, all 
what I can do is to loyally publish your own advisory texts, but none 
can be understood since none is published in any of the concerned languages.

If you want IDNA to be used please explain it as an application "plus":

(1) if your application includes IDNA, you can enter Unicode strings 
instead of ASCII DNs.
(2) to know which the extended ("xn--...") DN to register in order to 
get a Unicode string supported please use "Extended domain name to 
register to support a desired Unicode string" function in your 
application menu.

This text being worded in technically invariant terms for the 25.000 
concerned language entities.
I said I was stupid.
