The solution is generally for TLDs to implement a character set policy.
For example, .at only allows these non-ascii characters in domain names:
ä ü ö ë à á â è é ê ì í î ï ò ó ô ù ú û ý ÿ ã å æ ç ð ñ õ ø œ š þ ž
The other reason for limited adoption of internationalized domain names is
that the specifications are not yet finalized.
