Non Latin Characters for Domains

ICANN board directors will now vote on allowing Non Latin characters in domain names as specified by the IDN protocol. If the proposal passes then it will mean that we will soon be able to see domain names in Arabic, Chinese and even hindi.

More on this story in the CNN Technology website.

I still cannot imagine how I would be able to type in the domain names using my keyboard. Changing the charset is going to be a pain each time you need to visit a site.
