(Changed the subject line because the topic of discussion has changed.)

U+0933 (Devanagari LLA) isn't used in Hindi, so its sorting order in the
Hindi collation table hardly matters.

Via the ICU's collation demo[1] I have verified that it does sort after
U+0939 (Devanagari HA) in Marathi, as expected. There is no error.

Similarly, U+0AB3 (Gujarati LLA) sorts after U+0AB9 (Gujarati HA) in the
Gujarati locale. Again, no error.
