I do believe the issue of SSAC has already been covered becuase it clearly
refers to "all the lables" against "the Domain Name Label List". I cannot
see what else it could mean. If it could be of any issue that is relevant,
it is already been addressed in my last paragraph that askes ICANN and
Registries to work with the corresponding language community to generate
and valid IDN variants. Also our comments are at the policy level. I'm not
comfortable to go to the technological details that are not the mission of
this intervention.

I guess there is no rules against at-large community to file 2 or more
comments on the same document. If the SSAC is so essential to your comment,
perhaps a separate comment would work better
