I'm not sure I would expect my dictionary to be sorted this way. In 
any case, many dictionaries are sorted in arbitrary, non-lexical 
manners. Unix doesn't need to emulate that; Unix needs a reasonable
sort order that works for a shell and keeps an alphabetic order 
people (of that language) would consider reasonable. If sorting the
dots in made more people happy than not, it would be good, but most
of us seem to not care in most sorting situations, except the shell
where it's a pain.
