IDNs: In the United Arab Emirates too

In this Le Monde article (in French) on Louis Pouzin, the father of the Cyclades project (a project similar to Arpanet in the 70's, which merits a page on the English version of Wikipedia), Mr Pouzin says China launched last May an addressing system in Chinese independant from the DNS (there were confusing information on this a while ago), and also that United Arab Emirates quietly launched a similar system in Arab characters.
