This is one particular - and concise - dictionary. There are many
other sources that don't make this distinction, for example the
Unicode Consortium's documents about South Asian scripts:
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode6.1.0/

Unicode calls all South Asian scripts "Indic". This is the common term
in discussions of computing in these languages, which this list is
about.

Again: Let's not make up controversy.
