One of the original goals of DASL is to be able to create queries  
that easily translate to SQL. If you have a DASL interpreter of this  
type (as is the case with Catacomb), then the collation order is, to  
a large extent, outside the control of the DASL implementation. The  
collation order is controlled by the underlying SQL engine.

I imagine that if the DASL specification indicated a collation order  
that was inconsistent with the underlying query engine use by an  
implementation, the implementation would just ignore the specification.
