I don't recall using any argument that suggests Indic can not mean a group
of Indo-European languages, just that it differs with context. In fact,
usage by the a specialized body, and not a general one, lends credence to
the argument that its usage is differential based on context.

And Last, Unicode Consortium is what you should be taking the lead from,
when it comes to word usage - Not a dictionary, its etymology, or cultural
usage within a continent, because a non-profit based in US registered in
the 90s, would be the appropriate authority to define what the correct
usage of a word would be.
