how would you state requirements involving sorting?

Suppose you help somebody write requirements for a piece of software and you see an item:

Sorting. Diacritic marks need to be stripped when sorting titles

You know that sorting is a lot more complicated than removing diacritics, and that giving the directive above to a naive developer is going to lead to trouble. You know you want to end up with an implementation involving the UCA with a tailoring based on the locale. How would you suggest to reword the requirement?
