It's a difficult problem for sure. Just as a tiny example, the
3 extra letters in Scandinavia go in this order in Norway:

  æ ø å

... but in Sweden they use:

  å æ ø  [or å æ ö]

It's amusing to see them sorted at the START of the alphabeth
instead of at the end as happens with things like the ICANN
attendee list.

So, yes, hopefully it is out of scope.
