Well, I'd quite happily argue that _could_ be different
from fuß, given that I can easily imagine someone (maybe some
participants in this working group!) calling me the word spelled by
the label in the former domain name, and not that in the latter.  Note
that .info is a gTLD with a strong presence in the German market (and
one which was early to market with German IDNA2003 domain names) but
an international audience.
