So it's not technically impossible.  But the marketing "sellathon" will
create havoc.  Just because something is possible, technically, doesn't
mean it happens.  In my time in the I*net industry (which could be counted
in years on one hand) I've seen many a site that just don't keep up with
current release servers (DNS included).  It all costs money to update, and
for a lot of the decision makers, they cannot see the advantage in such
updates.  Therefore, industry follows the latest trends 3-5 years after
they happen.  Problem with that is the people at the front, i.e. using
extended character sets, at being held back.

I'm not saying it's right or wrong..  that's just the way I see it.
