Explicación/antecedentes: El equipo de revisión de responsabilidad y transparencia (ATRT) emite este pedido de comentarios públicos en un juego de borradores de propuestas recomendadas [PDF, 716 KB] que ha desarrollado como parte de su revisión de los compromisos de ICANN con la responsabilidad y transparencia bajo la Confirmación de Compromisos (AoC). Se espera que el ATRT presente las recomendaciones finales a la Junta de ICANN antes del 31 de diciembre de 2010.

El período de comentarios públicos permanecerá abierto por 30 días y terminará el 3 de diciembre de 2010. Bajo la AoC, el ATRT debe considerar los comentarios del público en respuesta a este borrador de recomendaciones propuestas antes de enviar sus recomendaciones finales a la Junta. Por lo tanto, un período de comentarios públicos de 30 días le brindará al ATRT tiempo suficiente para considerar los comentarios del público antes de emitir sus recomendaciones finales a la Junta de ICANN.

Miembro del personal responsable: Olof Nordling

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"""" is not an IDN."
