Non-Latin Characters To Be Allowed In Domain Names

According to just about everyone, ICANN is set to allow non-Latin characters in top-level domain names. Meaning that web surfing will get a lot easier for those who do not speak a Latin-based language.

From the comments that I have read, English speakers see this as a problem if they want to visit a site in say Japan, China or Russia. I am curious myself as to how this one will play out. Will ICANN have a Latin domain name translation for every non-Latin domain name? Yes? No? I don’t know? Bueller?
