Re: [gnso-idn-wg] Addition to Section 4.2.1
assuming the following is the suggested language (i may have lost track)
Support for considering and not penalising any pioneering,
for example, the experimental IDN system run
i don't support singling out any particular pre-existing developments because i don't think we have gone through all the necessary criteria for deciding which pioneering/pre-existing efforts get what level of consideration.
i also think we should give them consideration not out of fear of confusion or backlash, but because running code should be considered anytime we think of designing new code. and if it works and is compatible with the principles of ICANN then is should get due consideration.
Support for considering and not penalising any pioneering, pre- existing developments regarding IDN gTLDs with widespread language community support. Also recommend that ICANN support any such efforts that are in keeping with its principles and goals and which are in current use by established language communities.
