Great proposal! I think, based on my reading of ICANN's meeting minutes and IDN RFCs, that as an international organization they are worried limiting some scripts that support non-ASCII languages would be an overreach in favor of English speakers and Latin. They are taking time to make sure that whatever decision they make doesn't over-exclude non-latin-language speakers. (And in the meantime hoping the Browsers just do this for them 😉.) Turns out internet governance is just as slow-paced as any other kind of governance.
