You just need to re-implement the locales ;)

Each language has its own sorting order defined by their respective
locale. This includes a definition of equivalence classes (characters
which are rated the same during a sort), and collation characters
(multiple characters which are to be handled as one, e.g. the German
double-s). You can find further information at

I think that the size of these documents speak for themselves, so I
shall refrain from further comments about the sanity of doing such
an implementation.

  Just what I was afraid of, still most of tr10 seems about charqacter
normalization, whether this should be done on XML input is still
a work item in the W3C XML Core WG, so this may be required anyway in some
future, but I really dislike the idea of coding it.
