Re: Internationalised Domain Names
Prefixing was indeed part of the solution I proposed and patented back in 1997.
This trivial change has impacts on the internet applications, programming languages and even operating systems, in order to support the display and handling of characters from Unicode. This trivial change has taken over ten years to get to where it is now.
There was an idea back in 1992/3 to migrate .com into .com.us, but to retain .INT is for INTernational treaty organisations including UN.INT. This would have meant trademark law in each country would govern domain name disputes within that country.
To see how internationalised top level country code domain names would look, visit http://super.name.
