Thanks for your feedback. 

I also wanted to note that without the Vedic Extensions characters, even with
only the Devanagari Extended characters, it is not possible to completely write
the Sama Vedic texts. 

This is because the generic Vedic Extensions characters (especially KARSHANA,
PRENKHA and SHARA) occur in combination with the Devanagari combining digits in
Vedic texts. So we need both Vedic Extensions characters and Devanagari
Extended characters to write these texts.

See the original Vedic proposal http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n3366.pdf
pp 20 21 for samples.

Thanks.
