The explanation is that you're not talking about the same thing.
Changing the forward-word function is out of the question (it's a function
used at may places, so changgin its behavior has to be done extremely
carefully).  That's what Richard is talking about.

Whereas you're maybe just talking about M-f and M-b, which can be changed
with something like a thai-word-mode minor mode, to which nobody
would object.

Until someone provides an actual patch, we can't tell whether it's OK.
