Subject: Sending the original (Unicode) domain name as well as the ACE?
This issue was raised on the Crisp mailing list <URL:http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/crisp-charter.html>. It seems it could be a good idea, for the registry, to store the original (Unicode) form of an IDN, as well as its ACE (ASCII-encoded) form. It would allow more searches (Crisp protocols do not perform only exact-match searches but also partial-name searches, which are not possible on the ACE form). Am I correct when reading draft-ietf-provreg-epp-domain-04.txt that it contains nothing about transmitting the original form from the registrar, which knows it, to the registry? And that <domain:name> is only the ACE form? Shouldn't we add an optional element <domain:original_name>?
