> So I would support Andre argument for ICANN to adopt IDNs , walk the talk and become UA ready.

I would suggest being careful what you ask for.

ICANN's web site is in six languages, English, French, Spanish, Russian, 
Arabic, and Chinese.

The French or Spanish version would be ICANN.ONG.  Hey, look, it's 
registered with name servers at APNIC.  Oh, bummer, lame delegation, DNS 
request return REFUSED.

If you look up ICANN.NGO, which is automatically paired with ICANN.ONG, 
it's not lame, but points at a web server at RIPE which returns a default 
web page that says It Works!
