The thing with homoglyphs is that it depends on the choice of font type and size. That’s why it is hard to define the set. For example, in certain font types lower case L ‘l’ and number one ‘1’ (both ASCII) look almost identical.

To deal with cases of cross-script homoglyphs, the ICANN IDN guidelines have a requirement to prohibited such registrations (i.e. mixing Cyrillic with Latin in a single label) except for in cases of established orthographies, such as Japanese (i.e. Japanese uses three different scripts: Han, Hiragana and Katakana).
