Regarding the new \w regexp escape in 5.11by kappa (Chaplain)

kappa has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Good day, fellow monks!
That's what we read in perl5110delta:
AFAIU, that means \w will no more match non-ascii letters in Unicode strings. I have just built a fresh 5.11 and I don't witness this change:
Now on to 5.11:
On one hand, this is quite a relief as it means I don't have a lot of very broken code on me. On the other hand, this contradicts my understanding of the declared change.
Can someone enlighten me?
