You show me a DNS server which supports kanji :-)

This is a big bugbear of mine.  Yes, you can register domains in all these
weird scripts, but there's bugger all software support for them, and it
will take *years* to replace all that's out there with new versions.  Look
at how slowly crypto use is spreading, or how little-used IPv6 is.  IMNSHO,
the registrars who are hyping their furrin-language domain registrations
are committing a gross fraud, as registrants are led to believe that their
new gobbledigook.com will be usable when it ain't.
