The whole of section 3 is written in a way that suggests that default grapheme clusters are the norm, and extended grapheme clusters are a recommended extension. We feel that this the section should be re-edited to make it clear that the extended default grapheme cluster is the standard way to do things in the future, but that you *could* find applications dealing with the former definition.

To help with this, we suggest that you find a different word that 'extended' for the name of extended default grapheme clusters, and that you rename default grapheme clusters to something like legacy default grapheme clusters.
