sorry the misunderstanding. I should have better expressed what I
referred to. I meant the statement that 'the target market of sharp S
(Germany) has been conditioned (by their country code registry operator)
that domain names using sharp s and “ss” are different.'
That is not the case.

> Anyway, the key message I was trying to make is that the analysis on sharp S is on technical grounds. That the technical issue originated because of linguistics conventions getting into protocol, sure. But absent of the technical issues we would not be exploring this case, would we?

I think we nevertheless would have explored this case, but the
discussion would maybe have been much shorter and wouldn't have taken
