May I remind that all what IUsers need is the ability to "filter out 
the filters" as an option, i.e. that the browser transparently 
transmit the user entry. The reason why is that I should get to the 
same place whatever the application or the browser on my machine, and 
for that I do prefer to use the same IDNEngine for my browsers and 
applications. IDNEngines are partly documented in RFC 5895 (partly) 
because IDNA2008 does not support some key features (like majuscules).
