Dear John,

Until now this thread shown the possible sustainabilty of the IDNA2008
consensus between concerned IETF engineers and Innovative Users. This mail
introduces an ICANN oriented pertinent (
point of view which is technically less open minded.

At a time, the Chair suggested that this WG could transfer as an ICANN WG to
discuss the user side. I then started the IUCG workon at to that
end because ICANN does not really represent us. Then we found that such a
debate had to be in the public domains and to include every  type of
stakeholder in the ICANN/IETF/IUsers.
