Yes, we chose to sort by `code unit` because Web Audio API is a JavaScript API, and JavaScript DOMStrings are in UTF-16 and sorted by code unit, not code point. Since these are opaque identifiers and all we want is a stable sort that works the same on all platforms and all implementations, code unit sort is the simplest and meets our needs. See https://github.com/rtoy/web-audio-api/commit/986bae6b00552bac3458bd1b5b603628e08c1f6c

@r12a @aphillips could you confirm that this is ok?
