I think DFA forces regex for BEGWORD, LIMWORD, ENDWORD, instead of
whether patching or not.  Could you remark code in dfassbuild() without
patching?  It seem that DFA rejects their words from before.

        case BEGWORD:
        case ENDWORD:
        case LIMWORD:
        case NOTLIMWORD:
          if (d->multibyte)
              /* These constraints aren't supported in a multibyte locale.
                 Ignore them in the superset DFA, and treat them as
                 backreferences in the main DFA.  */
              sup->tokens[j++] = EMPTY;
              d->tokens[i] = BACKREF;  <<<<

DFA does not handle word context in multibyte correctly.  Perhaps, if we
fix it, DFA will take a performance penalty.
