[UA-discuss] Wanted: Some thoughts on measuring EAI

One of the things I would like to do is measure the extent of EAI deployment today  (which is included in this year’s business plan and budget) and for each of the next few years.
I’d also like to get a measure of how different client and server applications are able to handle both EAI and IDNs, with ‘handle' being the ability to ACCEPT and DISPLAY the different permutations we’ve got in our UA Use Cases.
I think that there should be some automatable way of testing servers – perhaps sending an SMTPUTF8 Request and measuring the response.   But how do we identify the servers to query?   Is there a list somewhere?   Do we leverage the work of the Anti-Virus and Spam monitors?
Could we automate the client software evaluation or will this require an install and manual exercise and evaluation?
So, before we issue a Help Wanted request for email evaluation I would appreciate your thoughts on how we might do this evaluation.
 Thanks in advance.
