this is certainly the best and clearest begining of a user oriented
explanation of IDNA2008's purpose to non-involved people. However,
the "other way" and "that direction" are not enlightning enough. How
would you phrase it to be more informative for them? I am sure this
would help a lot of people to understand better. More over if Tina,
ICANN, Felex and W3C, etc. used the same quote in their glossary, etc.
