I don't think you mean "deterministic". UCA is deterministic, it just sorts many strings as equal.

Possible. I assume that ZWNJ is ignored in UCA because that is the expected behavior for many other
languages. Not ignoring ZWNJ is possible with a tailoring that gives it some non-zero weights.
Note that many languages require tailorings for at least a couple of characters to follow national
