As It mentioned that Nameprep profile will use the NFKC form of the
string right? (as mentioned in section of 4)


I am not sure if this is a valid example to begin with.


Imagine these two chars 'a' and '*' if they appeared sequencely they
would yield  a unique display char. If those two didn't have a
normalized char (is it possible?) and someone used the domain a* if
UNICODE released a normalized form later on What will happen?
