Nonsense.  The average user will just click "OK" whatever warning
anyone puts up.  That's why browsers are failing to load more and more
troublesome pages with TLS problems and so on.

The good news, of course, is that probably browsers will do that for
IDNs as well, especially where the registry doesn't publish parsable

The bad news is that we're at least 5 years late :)
