The current IDN code contains support for 
* the obsolete RACE encoding, which has now been rendered obsolete by the Punycode encoding
* the Multilingual Testbed, which has now been superseded by the deployment of IDNs in the standard DNS space

Support for both of these should be removed, to reduce code size and complexity.

LGTM, but we should get a necko peer to sign off on this... this is all under /netwerk/, and I'm not sure how relaxed their review policy is.
