Questions on the Unicode BiDirectional (BIDI) Algorithm

Can anyone provide me an actively resolving example of a .com domain name that demonstrates employment of the Unicode BIDI algorithm?  Specifically, I am looking for realized/resolving examples of an Arabic number (AN) and character-containing domain name, (such as مصر.com), but that which employs the BIDI algorithm to change an Arabic 1, to a European number (EN) 1?   (E.g. مص١ر.com), or (مص1ر.com).  The BIDI algorithm should be changing either the AN or EN, or vise-versa; or has Verisign not yet incorporated the BIDI algorithm into its registry?


Thank you,
