No, I'm not sure at all. All I can say is that a quick check in my scholarly books didn't bring up a single example where uppercase and lowercase were treated differently. If I apply your code, I will have the same problem with Azygous -> aardvark. How would I write the table so that lowercase and uppercase are not distinguished at all? I tried

\startluacode
sorters.mappings['en'] = {
   ["a"] =  1, ["b"] =  2, ["c"] =  3, ["d"] =  4, ["e"] = 5,
   ["f"] = 6, ["g"] = 7, ["h"] = 8, ["i"] = 9, ["j"] = 10,
   ["k"] = 11, ["l"] = 12, ["m"] = 13, ["n"] = 14, ["o"] = 15,
   ["p"] = 16, ["q"] = 17, ["r"] = 18, ["s"] = 19, ["t"] = 20,
   ["u"] = 21, ["v"] = 22, ["w"] = 23, ["x"] = 24, ["y"] = 25,
   ["z"] = 26,
}
\stopluacode

but that didn't work.
