FWIW, allowing anything that looks like (yes, I use that non-specific
phrase very intentional) a character that is dangerous in scripting is
and was when IDNA2003 was created a very very very bad idea. I do not
think many people see the difference between ’ and ', and allowing
such characters and %, !, $, * etc is something I would say is a bad
idea. Very bad idea. Not everyone can have "their name" as a domain
name. Because domain names are domain names, and not words and names.
That said, I see your point regarding already registered domain names.
Same thing for domain names that include arrows, snowman etc.
