In a world where unicode is increasingly present and confusion about its
characters increasingly problematic (typosquatting, etc.) wouldn’t it be
reasonable to expect unicode-related semantic functions to be provided
in most frameworks, systems and languages to allow better handling of
such problems, thus making that problem the interface’s one?

Maybe if ever this problem occurs more and more in domain names,
internet addresses, and such, interfaces such as web ones, or other
editors, will inevitably need to support features to avoid confusion the
same way emacs currently could?
