As James already pointed out, I'm not sure why the extension is even
necessary to accomplish this on a purely technical (protocol) level.

eppcom:minTokenType is based on xsd:token, which is based on
xsd:normalizedString and adds whitespace collapsing. Unless that
introduces a problem I'm not a aware of, none of this prevents the
specification of internationalized e-mail addresses for contacts in EPP;
in particular, it doesn't limit the available characters to ASCII.

Many registries (like e.g. Neustar for .biz, or the TLDs run by our own
TANGO system) already accept them right now. It would be silly to require
them to use an extension to do the same in the future.
