As agreed during the IDN WG call today, I start a thread to further
elaborate on the statement in item 2 under "Other considerations..." at the
end of 4.5.1
The starting point was the phrasing in the 14 March draft:
"2. There should be an overall limit, i.e. no more than <x> number of
languages/scripts in an IDN gTLD. The method for determining such a limit
remains to be defined."
Comments stated that the limit shouldn't necessarily be the same for all,
that the applicant should provide input for any limit, that the applicant
should declare how to limit the degree of script mixing, and more...
Maybe, just maybe, the following drafting could better capture the views:
"2. An IDN gTLD registry should limit the degree of script mixing and have a
limit for the number of scripts allowed for its domain names. Such limits,
with justifications, should be proposed by the IDN gTLD applicant and be
evaluated for reasonableness."
Now, over to you all for improvements or alternatives.
