ireg-name doesn't cut up the name into labels, because it is intended
(similar to reg-name in RFC 3986) to cover other registries than just
the DNS, if and when these would be used in new schemes.
I suggest that you look at the IDNA RFCs if you want to get a definition
of a label including non-ASCII characters. IDNA definitely deals with
individual labels, because that's where punicode and the xn-- prefix
and all that stuff happen.
