The measured performance improvements don't seem particularly large. Also, our problem is with calling these functions many times for each operation, not necessarily with them being slow.

I think that prior to adding new code, we should better define the concepts it works with. Different ports return drastically different results for word boundaries, and considering how basic these operations are, that causes really ugly bugs (see e.g. bug 65898 or bug 65999).

While we cannot even agree upon what word boundaries are, adding "word boundaries considering word break positioning" seems counter-productive.
