No, there's no numerical limit. You could do it for whichever 22CWSAs
Unicode ends up encoding. Another consequence is that searching as well
as sorting would work: you could search at the first level for yod-he-vav-he,
and find either P-H or Square encodings, or you could search for specifically
P-H codes or particularly Square codes by using a finer degree of separation.
The more I think about this, the more I like it.

Collating Egyptian is a whole different ball of wax about which I know nothing.
