OK , I can open a jira issue for this one.

Yes, in both cases Lucene supports "jdk or icu" impl for collation and break
iteration, so we have encountered these differences before.
I can't comment on the collation difference (except we already
conditionalized our test case for ICU here)
For the break iterator difference, a user from Laos commented that when he
uses the ICU implementation with Thai, he gets better results... so maybe
ICU simply improved the thai dictionary?
