With a Collacation ontology you could define and share the process that 
dynamically calculates your sortKey. But sure we can start with a simple 
sortKey property and later add best-practice methods how to generate it. 
I am not fully comfortable with having it as property of the concept, 
but the triple-model of RDF does not let us do better without 
reification. Whe should only agree on:

1. The URI of the sortKey property
2. The domain of the property (literal with integer datatype?)
3. Whether a resource can have more than one sortKey (similar to 
http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/#S14 for prefLabel).
