Description

11 years ago
The .cat TLD should be added to the IDN whitelist.
Registry: http://www.domini.cat
Policy: http://www.domini.cat/normativa_registre.html 

The allowed characters consist of ten accented forms of Latin letters,
plus U+00B7 CATALAN MIDDLE DOT - ·. There are possibly some spoofing possibilities with this, but they are mitigated by the fact that the registry representative assures me that it is only permissible directly between two "l" characters, which is the only permitted use in Catalan.

So I think it's reasonable to make an exception to our general "no punctuation" rule, for .cat only, for the time being. However, if future IETF/ICANN recommendations relating to characters allowed in IDN change the situation, then of course we reserve the right to re-evaluate all entries in the whitelist.

So, on this basis, I am approving .cat for inclusion.

Patch v.1

Here's the patch, with a request for the relevant approvals. By precedent (see e.g. bug 322996), no code review or trunk baking is required because this patch is political rather than technical.
