It does not make sense that .COM allows Cyrillic characters:

http://www.iana.org/domains/idn-tables/tables/com_cyrl_1.0.html

i script of a domain name is Cyrillic.

Domain names do not have such property as script.

Is the following domain name:

	CCC.COM

Latin or Cyrillic?

The only reasonable thing to do is to disable so called
IDN.

PS

Isn't it obvious from the page you referred that IDN is
not internationalization but an uncoordinated
collection of poor localizations?
