This document describes a method of representing rules for validating
identifier labels and alternate representations of those labels using
Extensible Markup Language (XML).  These policies, known as "Label
Generation Rulesets" (LGRs), are used for the implementation of
Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), for example.  The rulesets are
used to implement and share that aspect of policy defining which
labels and Unicode code points are permitted for registrations, which
alternative code points are considered variants, and what actions may
be performed on labels containing those variants.

This document is a product of the Label Generation Rules Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition 
of the Official Internet Protocol Standards 
(https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
