Aren't we are supposed to only be looking at IDNA2008 (which was finished in
2010)? All the documents seem to list that version.

The Generation Panels output is for labels in the root zone only, not for
labels in the second level and below. Our output goes to the Integration
Panel to put into the Root Zone LGR. All of the documents I've seen so far
talk about the Root Zone LGR.

Have we heard back from the Integration Panel on this?
