Re: Fix it in-browser

Tannin is correct that this problem needs to be handled in the user interface. It's simply not possible to fix it in the DNS protocol, or to a large extent in DNS registration policies. Technically, the problem is pretty much indistinguishable from "Don't be evil."

Consider that human writing systems have evolved over thousands of years, and none of them was designed for the Internet. There isn't space in this box to write a technical essay, but here is a sequence of such essays if people want gory details:
