Dear Gerv, 

Telnic Limited is the registry operator and the sponsoring organisation for .tel TLD 

As we announced earlier, Telnic will start accepting IDN registrations starting from June 15, 2010. In our registry IDN policies we implemented a number of measures to mitigate against possible customer confusion when dealing with IDNs. Such measures include variant name blocking and name bundling. The URL of the registry website is and the address of our Policies page is

In accordance with your announcement posted at we would like .tel IDNs to be enabled in the Mozilla project software. 

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Vladimir Shadrunov

The policies seem entirely in order, and very carefully specified.

This was approved for GECKO1924_20100413_RELBRANCH on mozilla-1.9.2 as well, so that we can pick the fix up if we do build #7.
