IDNA bis is tied to Unicode which supports every script. Languages 
use scripts. One simple rule of thumb is: scripts are end to end 
digital formats (they belong to the IETF). Languages are brain to 
brain protocols (which do not belong to the IETF) but may have some 
impact that are to be addressed at the presentation layer (that IDNA 
fakes at application level).
