Proper Sort Order in mirrors.xml for Non-English Alphabets

I started to translate the components required by the dynamically
generated mirrors.xml in share/sgml (i.e. transtable.xml,
transtable-local.xsl, mirrors-local.xsl), but I found that the sort
order (attribute "sortkey") generated for countries is not correct in
the sense of Hungarian spelling (ISO-8859-2), because it moves the words
starting with national characters (like É) to the end of the list. For
example, É should follow E in my tongue.
Is there any opportunity to define their sortkeys manually or use
another alphabet (encoding) for keeping things sorted?
Thank you for replies in advance.
