All of those use cases are valid, but the social engineering is IMO the
most important reason why we should consider it for first-class
inclusion in Emacs.

I don't know if we should be planning the storage mechanism yet, but you
can certainly put that together.  Don't optimize this prematurely, just
use a list at first.

It's important to decide what we're doing with this feature; as you see
there's several use cases and I want to be sure we can cover them all
(hence my proposal with several classes of characters and matching
rules) before jumping into the implementation.  I'm pretty sure we'll at
least need the "confusables" or homoglyphs so maybe that's a good start.
