This note describe issues raised by the deployment and use of
Internationalized Domain Names.  It describes problems both at the
time of registration and those for use of those names for use in the
DNS.  It recommends that IETF should update the IDN related RFCs and
a framework to be followed in doing so, as well as summarizing and
identifying some work that is required outside the IETF.  In
particular, it proposes that some changes be investigated for the
IDNA standard and its supporting tables, based on experience gained
since those standards were completed.

Document status:

This document reviews the IDN landscape from an IETF perspective and
presents the recommendations and conclusions of an IAB-convened ad
hoc committee charged with reviewing IDN issues and the path forward
(See Section 6).  Its recommendations are recommendations to the
IETF, or in a few cases to other bodies, for topics to be examined
and actions to be taken if those bodies, after their examinations,
consider those actions appropriate.

Neither the IAB nor the members of the ad hoc committee have yet
reached consensus that this document is ready for final publication.
However, the IAB concluded that it was appropriate to expose it, as a
working draft, for community comment and feedback.  Such comments
should be sent to iab at iab.org (relevant material will be forwarded to
the IAB IDN Ad Hoc committee).

Item 5: Update on status of proposed .com agreement

Item 6: Next steps on policy issues related to proposed .com agreement
- policy for renewal of gtld agreements
- funding model policy (possible new policy)
- policy for capping fees that a registry can charge
- exclusions in agreements from future consensus polices or changes in consensus polices

Item 7: Any other business
