This is interesting! Could you please give a link to the proposal — a 
document number, a URL, a link to an email thread?

 From what I have seen of software developers wanting to stick with IDNA 
2003 instead of moving to IDNA 2008, the declarations of UTS #46 do not 
seem to be a major factor. UTS #46 talks of a transition, but I don't 
hear developers talking about being mid-transition. The use using IDNA 
2003 seem to want to stay with IDNA 2003 until some other factor — like 
a library, or a more important piece of software in their ecosystem — 
changes to adopt IDNA 2008.

Best regards,
