I think most registries doing any kind of variants mostly do this sort
of thing.  The point of the klensin-idna-rfc5891bis draft is that you
_really do_ need to make such policies if you are registering names,
and that you really better understand how the various characters work.
One way to "understand" that is to use the fairly restrictive sample
LGRs that ICANN is offering.
