This document describes a method of representing rules for validating
identifier labels and alternate representations of those labels using
Extensible Markup Language (XML).  These policies, known as "Label
Generation Rulesets" (LGRs), are used for the implementation of
Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), for example.  The rulesets are used
to implement and share that aspect of policy defining which labels and
Unicode code points are permitted for registrations, which alternative code
points are considered variants, and what actions may be performed on labels
containing those variants.

This document is a product of the Label Generation Rules Working Group of
the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
