this is really interesting. I didn't know this works. Nice to know, as I
personally also use a .℡ domain.

I don't think that we should incorporate this in our variant
considerations, though. After all, we only look at normalised versions.
I think the argument is similar to upper case characters. We don't look
at TEL or TeL oder similar, and that's why from my point of view we also
shouldn't look at ℡.

Best regards,
