Please review John Klensin's draft before making these kinds of assumptions.

Sorry, I realized that as soon as I had posted.  But, AIUI, John
Klensin's proposal also discusses whether domains should be allowed to
be represented in UTF-8 rather than punycode.  So it, too, does not
confine itself to considering only localpart issues.

I agree. Limiting discussion at this point to local-part does not 
take into account some of the possibilities.

That was the only point I was trying to make.  The existing proposals
address broader issues that just the localpart.
