I was actually expecting strict to produce the greater number of break opportunities, rather than fewer, since i intuitively associated strictness with delimiting primitive words. (?)  In other words, i'd have expected to see (though i could be wrong):

> For example, a UA with sufficiently-advanced Thai language processing ability could choose to map different levels of strictness in Thai line-breaking to these keywords, e.g. disallowing breaks within compound words in strict mode (e.g. breaking ตัวอย่างการเขียนภาษาไทย as ตัวอย่าง·การ·เขียน·ภาษา·ไทย) while allowing more breaks in loose (ตัวอย่าง·การเขียน·ภาษาไทย).
