Given that XMPP depends on IDNA, this may be of interest...

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

	Title           : Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications
(IDNA): Protocol
	Author(s)       : J. Klensin
	Filename        : draft-klensin-idnabis-protocol-00.txt

This document supplies the protocol definition for a revised and
updated specification for internationalized domain names.  The
rationale for these changes and relationship to the older
specification and some new terminology is provided in other
documents.  This document specifies a standard method using
characters outside the ASCII repertoire in domain names.  This
document defines internationalized domain names (IDNs) and a
mechanism called Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications
(IDNA) for handling them in a standard fashion.  IDNs use characters
drawn from a large subset of the Unicode repertoire, but IDNA allows
the non-ASCII characters to be represented using only the ASCII
characters already allowed in so-called host names today.  This
backward-compatible representation is required in existing protocols
like DNS, so that IDNs can be introduced with no changes to the
existing infrastructure.  IDNA is only meant for processing domain
names, not free text.
