"Extended default grapheme clusters should be used in implementations in preference to default grapheme clusters, because it provides better results for Indic scripts such as Tamil."

This should come much earlier and be easier to find. We would suggest that very near the beginning of section three the document states that it defines two types of default grapheme cluster, and that the extended one is the preferred.

 There also needs to be a separate section and heading for the definition of XDGCs. The current definition is difficult to find because it is just a small adjunct to the section about default grapheme clusters.
