I just wish to add, for Peter to best understand, that "U-labels" as
conceived by the IUCommunity  may be transformed into lowercase A-label with
many different "presentation prefixes" (other than "xn--") and from many non
U-labels origins (like user gesture, computed result, audio input,
sentences, Netix commands, etc.) that may only be occasionnally used on the
Internet. The ML-DNS implies a domain name stack (different classes) that
may be used as their class IN lowercase A-Label occurence.

In the future we will strive to document a UN class that will support a non
homographically confused NUCS (network universal character set) UCS subset
for ML-DNS unique registrations (avoiding confusion like .br and .6r) on a
first come first served basis.

Last but no least we plan to fully use not only the identification
(centralized management), but also designation (individual management) and
communication (mutual management) capacities. Therefore, only the Internet
DNS (i.e. lowercase A-Label IN and further UN classes as accepted by the
Internet community (presently the IEISOCANN enhanced cooperation IANA root
file)) is considered as being in the IETF standard track area.
