Well I don't know of any fully functioning Graphite-based font for
Indic. So you would have to write your own font. Rather than that, you
can do the work of writing HarfBuzz code!
The gold standard would be the judgment of native users, not some other
rendering engine. Uniscribe is OK for the most part, but where you
doubt, ask the friendly natives. I think there are Indians here who can
cover most if not all of the Indic scripts. I am available for
Devanagari (as used to write Sanskrit and Hindi) and Tamil (and Kannada
and Telugu, if no native Kannadiga or Teluguvallu is here).
