The normative references in the spec are all pointing to line-break classes defined in UAX14 to which a particular behaviour in the spec should be assigned.

There's still no statement in the spec (other than a note which simply says that further information can be found for all scripts in UAX14) that says that **in the absence of** other rules, then the UAX14 line-breaks should be applied as a fallback.  Having this in the spec will promote interoperability in the cases not called out, and will encourage implementers to fully implement UAX14 for the non-controversial cases that are currently outstanding. 

I think we should raise a GH issue to give this visibility.
