The EURALO Individual Users Association is preparing a proposal for the Global IGF - that follows a similar topic for discussion at SEEDIG and EuroDIG. We are a bit short of time, since the deadline is this coming Sunday, so there will not be much time to work on the text, but at least we might give a try.
There are several groups that work currently on IDN and UA. My personal opinion is that the focus is still mainly on the technical aspects rather than on the user experience, and also that UA is not just a DNS matter but it involves other domains like, for instance, search engines.
In simple words, what we would like to do, as Internet users, is to focus on the user experience in a global way. Subtopics can be search engines, multilingualism (and use of multiple scripts), elements that hinder the deployment of locally developed contents, and so on. Of course, we the overarching element is how the governance of the processes that aim at achieving Universal Acceptance.
We will submit a draft for comments by this WG and discussion on how to proceed.
