I can support that.

Strictly, it's not a protocol issue, but an operations issue, and
therefore ought probably to be operational advice (likely to be
reviewed in DNSOP).  I cannot believe I am getting up in public and
saying this, but if people really need that advice to be written down
somewhere I am willing to write an I-D to say it.  Especially if that
clears the issues with the current IDNA drafts.
