If you get a request with an a-label that doesn't exist, turn it in to a u-label, replace any of the variants n2..nx with canonical n1, turn it back into an a-label and try again.  It might synthesize new RRs for the requested name, or CNAMEs give or take the CNAME at the apex issue.

Hmm...you mean:

If you get a request that include any of the code points {n1, n2,...}, return a CNAME where nM is replaced with foo?
