So perhaps the intent is to allow user to select the LGR under which their submission will be approved?

When you're submitting an IDN, there is probably a selection of language tags you can pick.  These probably align with those; at least, that's the point of the distinction in the LGR approach we did for the root.  (The effect is supposed to be the same anyway, due to blocking, but I don't know whether Verisign is doing that too.)
