Opened on:
    1. Section 1.3: The description of "grapheme cluster" feels abbreviated and terse. Of particular concern to me is this sentence:

    The UA may further tailor the definition as required by typographical tradition.

    We think this could be clearer, perhaps by saying something similar to:

    The UA may extend grapheme cluster boundaries as required by the typographical traditions, as identified by the content's language. [See discussion of "extended graphame cluster" in Section 3 of UAX#29]
