However, the recent introduction of Unicode labels, as normative and

names (Unicode labels) to be used in machine communication if desired. 

Note that this scheme has not been adopted by PKIX nor S/MIME, nor has it even 
been proposed to either of the working groups.

The ASN.1 type is called OID_IRI and provides for node identification using 
Unicode labels.
