That functionality has been specified for quite a while. One of the
annoying differences between UCA and 14651 (with a plus for UCA).

If you define (assuming you need to define) contractions for
<sin, sin dot> and <sin, shin dot>, yes. It won't work with
Linux (e.g.) system localisation though, since for collation it
is 14651-ish, not UCA-ish.
