The original title described something we certainly can't do - there are legitimate domain names with combining marks (after all, the whole purpose of IDN is to allow domain names in languages other than English). Re-titling to track a more specific subset.

The specific example of xn--luaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa8465w seems like something that is allowed by IDN 2003, but isn't allowed by IDN 2008. Not sure how to check if it's allowed by Unicode Standard #46 (yes, it's a mess of incompatible standards).

The other specific example of xn--apple-xvd ("apple" with an arrow) is different, as even IDN 2008 allows it, as far as I can tell.
