I think the original is more grammatical than the proposed replacement, though
the whole paragraph could be a lot more readable:

It is often desirable that a collation should treat two strings as equal if the
two strings are identical after Unicode normalization. One strategy for
achieving this (recommended by the [Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0])
is to ensure that all strings are subjected to early Unicode normalization. Some
collations may require this, and may fail at run-time if they encounter data
that is not correctly normalized. However, it is not always feasible to achieve
this. Another strategy is for the collation to implicitly normalize strings
before comparison. Collations based on the Unicode collation algorithm use this
approach.
