Unicode Sorting Weight Tables

Hello wine-devel,

Looking at https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35009, the problem is that
windows uses completely different sorting weight tables from the official
unicode version.

However, MS disclosed them under their "Open Specifications" program:
(The tables are as download available, under the same license, according to MS

If we could use that, we should be able to produce the exact same sorting
windows has. And to properly solve those unicode bugs, that's what we need.

However, two questions arise:
1) If we could, would we even want to use those tables?
2) Is the license of that content compatible with Wine?

Your thoughts on this? Question 1) is probably the easiest. The copyright
notice can be found inside the PDF FWIW, but I don't really understand laywer-
