RFC 7700: Internationalized Nicknames


The internationalization odyssey that started with RFC 7564 (the PRECIS framework) and continued with RFC 7613 (PRECIS handling of usernames and passwords) with a side tour into RFC 7622 (updated internationalization for XMPP addresses) continued today with the publication of RFC 7700 (PRECIS handling of nicknames and display names for people, devices, accounts, websites, and other entities.

With publication of this document, we've completed our work in the PRECIS working group. Well, sort of - we've discovered some relatively small bugs in RFC 7564 and RFC 7613 so we'll need to go back and fix those. But at least we're receiving implementation feedback!
