That's true, but there is no standard character representation for
octet values 128 - 255.
If you use them in a DNS record, they are just binary values that
don't refer to a specific printable symbol.
Only octets in the range from 65 to 90 (uppercase) and 977 to 122
have a case equivalent for DNS resolution.
And IDN uses 7-bit ASCII DNS records.
