On September 1st, Martin J. Dürst asked:
3, 'possible requirement' related to directionality controls:
"(outside of the labels)" -> "(outside, but potentially directly 
adjacent of the labels)" (does this include cases with directionality 
controls inside a domain name, i.e. before/after a dot?)

Since the directional controls (LRE, RLE, LRO, RLO, PDF) are all defined 
as DISALLOWED in draft-ietf-idnabis-tables-06.txt, there is no possibility 
for them to appear inside a domain name.
