I think you show a case where you can not know before sending the
email (as the domain name used in the URI is not a U-label) where the
body of the text will end up, so I would say you MUST convert it to a
U-label before sending it.
This is exactly the confusion that exist in IDNA2003 that I see we
must get away from. We must get people to use the U-label or A-label
formats when passing things around (when not knowing DEFINITELY how
the receiving side will treat the data).
