The whole point is this:

1. In some Spanish-speaking locales <ch> MAY sort after <c> and
    before <d>, and in other locales <ch> MAY sort after <cg> and
    before <ci>, and your software MAY have to be able to deal with
    either possibility.

2. Culturally correct sorting has NOTHING to do with character
