The Public Interest Registry (PIR) managing the .ORG top-level domain is asking ICANN to authorize changes in its operations under the Registry Services Evaluation Process (RSEP). The registry wants to be able to register .ORG TLDs in seven more languages, including Croatian, Finnish, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Montenegrin and Portuguese.
Five of these languages use the same Latin script as English but contain various diacritical signs not included in the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII). Also, Hindi and Japanese use entirely different alphabets. Domain Incite reporting the news also points out that ICANN senior officials usually approve RSEP requests without any objections.
