Whether Safari devs are to blame here exclusively, I'm not sure - IDN
concept is by itself pretty evil, and this can be viewed simply a clever

I found out that firefox has a configuration property:
network.IDN.blacklist_chars. It includes the character used in the
demonstration (&#x3164; - HANGULL FILLER) and many more. So, the problem
seems to be known (at least in firefox).
