Dear Fahd, and others subscribed to the MENOG (Middle East Network 
Operators Group) mailing list,

As anyone who has used the limited keyboard common to cell phones knows, 
it can be more convenient to write in ASCII, and left-to-right, when the 
device does not (correctly, or currently) support right-to-left text 
input, and character repertoires other than ASCII.

For this reason, I write to you to share with you my personal view that 
Arabic Chat Script [1] is a Latin Script, that mnemonic identifiers are 
formed using Arabic Chat Script, and valid DNS labels may be formed 
using Arabic Chat Script, associating some identifier with some 
underlying resource at some host, via the DNS.

It is my hope that one or more individuals who are regular users of 
Arabic Script, and who are also regular users of Arabic Chat Script will 
offer to assist ICANN's Latin Generation Panel activity .

Thank you all for your very valuable time.

Eric Brunner-Williams, co-chair
Eugene, Oregon
