I've implemented draft-wilcox-cira-idn-eppext and plan to implement
draft-gould-idn-table which I have read already.

There is not so much overlap between them.

First, the terminology is not the same, as I've outlined in the past
here (repertoire vs table). It would maybe be a good idea if the WG can 
come to some terminology guidelines for IDNs so that at least various 
extensions are using the same words.

The CIRA extension is more closely related to the problem of variants,
and how one domain can block registration of another, so that one is 
able to query the server for one domain and having back the list of

I believe both extensions can advance forward independently from each
But, if needed, draft-wilcox-cira-idn-eppext could use
draft-gould-idn-table as a terminology basis.
