There is nothing to object.

The ".fra" project is destined to support the full French language
scriptural bandwidth and therefore regular pragmatic environment. Our job is
to support semantic addresses (i.e. also domain names) the semantic of which
demands majuscules. This has nothing to do with the way English language
scripting has been supported so far by DNS, nor even with the DNS (as long
as the Charter is respected and no mapping is specified at protocol level).

I frankly do not understand your objection, nor the reference to some post
modern philosophers? I suppose that you confuse the SA/DN layers that I said
I will try to document this WE. Why not just to give a few days and discuss
an I_D?

All the best
