Incidentally, about a year and a half ago I discussed this with another
list member, on- and off-list. We agreed that some sort of text-based
encoding of flags would be an interesting project, but disagreed as to
whether this was a Unicode problem.

The present discussion seems to approach the issue from the other side:
treat it as *only* a Unicode problem, and assume that the encoding
problem has been solved by TLD registration.

Unicode Consortium talking, not me.
