Well...  If you have an all-Cyrillic URL, then you should be able to
handle that as a normal domain, otherwise all this IDNA stuff is just
nonsense, and we'll never leave ASCII domains.  Firefox does the same as
Emacs currently does, and Chrome doesn't.

So I think I'll close this bug report and we can revisit the issue if an
industry "best practice" is ever established.
