Hm, I agree to leave things that we’re not certain undefined.

Is the “syllable boundaries” different from the current grapheme cluster 
definitions? If no, I suppose there’s no need to update the spec.

If different, is it possible to change Unicode grapheme cluster, or is 
it something that letter-spacing point needs to be different from 
grapheme cluster boundaries?
