John and I have updated our draft with lots of new terminology from Andrew Sullivan (thank you!), the fix to .JP, and a bunch of new ccTLDs. More comments are welcome.

> Abstract:
>   Internationalized Domain Names for Applications (IDNA) provides a
>   method to map a subset of names written in Unicode into the DNS.
>   Because of Unicode decisions, appearance, language and writing system
>   conventions, and historical reasons, it often has been asserted that
>   there is more than one way to write what competent readers and
>   writers think of as the same host name; the different ways of writing
>   are often called "variants".  This document surveys the approaches
>   that top level domains have taken to the registration and
>   provisioning of domain names that have variants.  This document is
>   not a product of the IETF, does not propose any method to make
>   variants work "correctly", and is not an introduction to
>   internationalization or IDNA.
