I wish to request a summary from IETF for the purpose of reporting to ALAC
and to the at-Large structures through the RALOs about the status of
completion of technical tasks related to IDN implementation. IETF has done
exhaustive work in this area and at-Large has been informed about the recent
internet drafts

At-Large structures comprise users who might require a non-technical summary
of technical progress covering answers to questions such as:

1) Has IETF completed all technical tasks related to IDN implementation? If
there are any pending tasks, are these tasks expected to be completed in
time before the implementation begins and if there are to be any further
pending tasks, will be be safe to assume that such pending tasks are of a
non-critical nature?

2) Is IETF 'comfortable' with the technical preparedness for IDN
implementation to begin immediately following the ICANN meeting at Seoul? In
other words, is there an "all-set" green signal from IETF?

3) Though IDN TLDs are to be implemented in a phased manner, (fast-tracked
ccTLDs first, followed by the next wave of IDN ccTLDs /gTLDs) the
implementation might proceed to fully integrate IDN TLDs in the root.I would
call the 'fast-track first' sequence as 'adminsitrative-phasing' of IDN TLD
implementation. Does IETF have any recommendation for 'technically-phasing'
in IDN implementation? ( I would be glad to non-technically expand this

This communication is posted as a request for inputs.

Thank you.
