Quoting Hiro Hotta:

Cyrillic, Greek, and Latin are three separate scripts, although they have a 
common root (shared with almost all other alphabetic scripts). For the purpose 
of IDNA, script identity is determined by the character name associated with 
each code point in the Unicode Code Chart, or on the blocks in that chart that 
are similarly headed with script names. This particulation should be
apparent at http://www.unicode.org/charts/.
