Talk about IT - Is ICANN's decision to internationalise domain names a good move?

Have your say in the Computerworld forums

ICANN has moved to allow top level domain names in non-Latin alphabets. Some commentators have suggested there are some cons to the move, one of which is it means the US and its allies giving up power over the Internet. For me, I think that is rather silly and ICANN's decision is a wonderful move that will open up a range of opportunity for those that don't understand latin-based alphabets. But I do wonder if Australian companies & organisations will request domain names in other languages from the AUDA. My guess is there will be a selection that do make this request but it won't be mainstream for some time. What's your thoughts on ICANN's move?
