Other Indic languages have the same issues. The input methods I saw in India
reorder the input to a standardised form, but then the output method does the same
thing again. It seemed they did not trust the content of files, and were determined
to never display anything which is syntactically incorrect. Those systems will
display a single valid cell, regardless of the order of the components forming it.
They also have logic so that poorly formed cells may not be displayed at all. It
seemed strange to me that there could be stuff in a file which is completely
invisible on output. This didn't seem to be a selectable feature, at least on the
systems I saw.
