公众意见:ALAC 评审的中期报告

ALAC 评审工作组 (WG) 已经发布了 中期咨询报告 [PDF,537K],以便与 ICANN 社群讨论。

继 Westlake Consulting 进行的一般会员咨询委员会独立评审发布之后,这份初步报告就所评审问题表达了 WG 的“初步思考”。报告所依据的是 WG 在巴黎会议上向 ICANN 社群的咨询结果,该咨询工作是通过网上意见论坛和与 ICANN 社群中各类团体进行的会议完成的。报告附录中包含了咨询总结。

现在,WG 发布此中期咨询报告,以使 ICANN 社群和员工在早期思考阶段就进行讨论。非常欢迎对本文进行评论,WG 鼓励所有感兴趣的人在 ICANN 开罗会议期间参加研讨会及/或在 公众意见论坛上发表评论

中期咨询文件包括新兴区域协议的讨论、可能的建议和需要解决的问题。此时,它不会形成,也不应该被解释为形成任何最终的建议或结论。

在今后几个月内,WG 将继续向社群咨询,并计划在 2009 年初的墨西哥会议上发布最终建议供讨论。

以上消息所附文档中包含英语文本。不久将发布此公告的翻译版本,同时以上链接也会提供非英语版本的报告。

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
