It is clear that Unicode will eventually exhaust its supply of code
points, and more will be needed.  Assuming ISO and the Unicode
Consortium follow the practices of the IETF, the next Unicode code
point size will be 128 bits.  This document describes how this future
128-bit Unicode can be leveraged to improve IPv6 adoption and finally
bring internationalization support to IPv6.
