I'm somewhat worried by the informal use of the term "alphabetical order" in this thread. In the pure-UTF-8 world of RDF, there exists a thing called the 'Unicode Collation Algorithm' and it's much, much, much more complex than things usually implied by the term "alphabetical order."

There are very good reasons for this complexity (outlined in document above); if there's anyone who thinks that some of those reasons don't apply to BIBFRAME, I'd love to hear them.
