The SSAC makes two recommendations:

1. Given the potential for user confusion and the currently unfinished work
on string similarity and IDN variants, the SSAC recommends a very
conservative approach to the delegation of single-character IDN top-level
domains. In particular, ICANN should disallow by default the delegation of
all single-character IDN TLDs in all scripts; exceptions are possible, but
only after careful consideration of each individual case.

2. Because important relevant work on string similarity, IDN variant
issues, and TLD label syntax is currently underway within ICANN, the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), and other bodies, ICANN should
review the Findings of this report, and any policies that it adopts in
response to recommendations made in this document, no later than one year
after the three work items mentioned above have been completed.
