[Extract on General Recommendations]

   1. IDN TLD operators (including IDN ccTLD, IDN gTLD and IDN
gTLDAccredited Registrars) are recommended to support Universal
Acceptance of
   IDN TLDs in their own systems. Part of this recommendation is that ICANN's
   IDN Guidelines be updated to include provisions for IDN TLD registries
   and registrars to support the Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs within their
   own systems (i.e. for registration systems and services to accept name
   server records, child hosts, contact information with IDN TLDs)
   2. ICANN should allocate specific resources for the advocacy of
   Universal Acceptance beyond the development of informational materials and
   3. ICANN should develop of informative reference materials for new IDN
   TLDs (including gTLD and ccTLD) to handle issues of Universal Acceptance
   4. ICANN initiates efforts, lead by staff, with participation from the
   community, for further studies to investigate the scope of the issue and
   what other services or actions could be taken by ICANN to support the
   Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs beyond outreach and awareness campaigns

Best regards,
