Really?  What work needs to be done, except for local part?  IDNA takes care
of the right-hand side.

So what is there to do about "internationalized mail addresses" other than the
local part?

full-width _where_?  somewhere other than local part?

if yes, then how can that be practical?  if no, then the charter does not
preclude their use.  (if you think otherwise, please explain.)
