Take the past two day's of press coverage for ICANN, for example. They are
being lauded for making the domain name system usable in other scripts as

literally tens of thousands of hours of volunteer time had been spent by
the IETF over the past decade to make this work.
Indeed, the top new item on today's English Wikipedia page reads: "The
Internet regulator ICANN approves plans to allow Unicode top-level domains
for the first time." Thus not only does ICANN get the credit, but "Unicode"
continues to be used to mean "non-Latin-script."
'tis my understanding that most anyone can edit WikiPedi ... fix it?
