An OPTIONAL <idnTableId> element that references the IDN Table
      used for the NNDN.  This corresponds to the "id" attribute of the
      <idnTableRef> element.  This element MUST be present if the NNDN
      is an IDN.

The IDNs that exist in the reserved domain table are canonical - the simplest possible form - and may be valid in multiple languages.  Since they are not actual registered domains submitted by a registrar, we don't know the intended language.

How should this be handled?
