Verisign’s .IDN priority period similar to .PORN

The IDN version of ".com" from Verisign will. use the same method as the .PORN Registry to allocate its domain names. If you need the IDN version of your ".com" domain name, you should read this.

According to Jean Guillon:
I believe that this is a good method, it allows existing users not to have their IDN version of the ".com" squatted.
