According to the Appendix C. of the proposal for testing IDN TLDs, it is proposed to use the term 'ØØÙØÛØ' for Persian Language. The suggested term contains the character 'YEH ÛÙââ' which has different unicodes in Persian and Arabic but looks exactly the same in lower case(which appears in the suggested term). We are using a bundle for Persian labels (registering variants of a label for those labels which include two characters 'YEH' and 'KAF' and numerals, which have different unicodes in Persian and Arabic).I therefore suggest to use the term 'ØØÙØÛØÛ' which means 'for test'. It includes the character YEH in both small and capital forms.The capital form of this character would help visually find which character-set is being used for the label.
Arabic YEH: ØØÙØÙØÙ xn--mgba6aj7f5ab
Persian YEH: ØØÙØÛØÛ xn--hgbk6aj7f53bba

Without having the capital YEH at the end ( The first character from the left ) it is not possible to find the difference between 'YEH's without looking at the punnycodes. I think it would be also be necessary to put both versions of this TLD in the root to test bundled TLDs in the root.
