This means casting in stone one specific approach, and a dangerous
one...... And the discussions on the existing
idna-update list show that the decision of exclusion is very difficult
and quite arbitrary.

The charter must not include such a rule.

The posted version of the charter suggested this as the basis for the WG's efforts, AND says that the WG must verify the direction in a consensus call. I was involved in adding that language.

Thus, it is not cast in stone.

Do you oppose the formation of the WG, support it or ... ? I'm assuming it's not black or white, but as we gauge consensus on forming the WG, it would help to know whether you object to the formation of the WG in general, or wish to see a WG on this topic but want to help set it on the right course.
