Section 4.1.3 IDNA2008: Convert ASCII domain name to Unicode
In one of the test:
    xn----f38am99bqvcd5liy1cxsg.xn-- rhqv96g
  Expected Output:
    普遍接受-测试.世界 or 普遍接受-测试。世界

The second expected output had a Chinese punctuation period instead of a
dot. While many modern browsers can handle the Chinese period mark, it is
not part of the domain. This , IMO, should be treated as negative test case
or taken out.

Section 4.2.1 Domain name: syntactic check
I noticed of the TODO tagged to add more tests, and recommend here to make
sure we should have test cases that involved CONTEXTO and CONTEXTJ.

Section 4.3.2 Domain name: decompose into components
    ua-test.link ---> ua-test, link

I recommend to add ccTLD with subzones to the test suite such as *.co.uk,
*.com.au, etc. This test will give users more insight of whether the tool
considered "ua-test.co.uk" has "uk" or "co.uk" as TLD. This will make the
scoring decision more complicate, but I would love to see this kind of
tests conducted and documented.

Rather than writing all above in the doc, I want to bring this up for more
discussion. I also have few edit related comments in the doc.
