That is an interesting point, and nicely explains why we have not opened 
up registration for cyrillic. We have yet to see a mature, 
well-publicized implementation of Cyrillic from any of the Cyrillic 
communities / countries. The Polish registry is the only one that 
publishes a Russian table in IANA 
http://www.iana.org/assignments/idn/pl-serbian.html and I'm not 
convinced they have ironed out all issues (e.g. your example of U+0442 
and U+043C are both permitted with no special treatment.)
