As far as this discussion is concerned, it does not seem that we need to be
much bothered about the history and background. What we need to focus on is
the word in its current context, so, Indic and Indian languages, with
particular reference to display standards, and therefore the direction of
work needed to ensure that pages can display correctly on as many devices
as follow the standards.
>From recent posts, it seems that Unicode acknowledges two families of
scripts, namely Indic and Brahmic. If this is the correct situation, I see
no confusion in defining the work ahead.
