Well as I stated before this issue can be solved and registry can have
control over this problem a simple solution will be like this:
If someone wants to register ex. 3COM (when COM is RTL string) a
registry will do this:

1) register 3COM to the user.
2) lock COM3 to be registered.
3) lock all <digit>COM to be registered.

Well this solution might work to solve this problem.
And user will have the choice to have <digit>COM , COM<digit> as

As I think Andrew pointed out, the presence of DNAMEs in the DNS
makes the second option infeasible-- registries have no real
control over the labels that may appear in a domain name other
than those that they, themselves, are registering into zone
