i thought that when icann allowed non-latin characters in URLs, they were going to limit it to only the ccTLD where those characters were in common usage - so ԍooԍle.ru would be valid, but ԍooԍle.com wouldn't be registerable.

am i misremembering, or did that plan change? this just seems like a phishing nightmare.

I actually just ran a query on a domain using Google Domains and was offered a .com variant of an existing domain with the only difference, the letter c with a Hacek (Ĉ). Phishing nightmare indeed.
