count me. I believe that  IDN and EAI will appear in common in the other side of the business card when IDN is becoming popular and EAI is standardlization in IETF.
in China, many comanies apply both Chinese domain name and ASCII domain name.
IDN and EAI does not appear in other side of the business card not because people do not want them but becauce of IDN is still not supported by applications and EAI is still not standardlized.
