zhuyin tones tailored too strong?

Reported by: markus Owned by: pedberg
Component: collation Data Locale: zh
Phase: Review: markus
Weeks: 0.1 Data Xpath:


The Chinese/zhuyin tailoring creates a secondary CE for the first tone, but primary CEs (which sort below spaces) for the other tones. Is this a mistake? Should they all be secondary CEs?

&[last primary ignorable]<<ˉ # zhuyin first tone, equivalent to unmarked

<ˊ<ˇ<ˋ<˙ # zhuyin fifth tone, neutral (unmarked in pinyin)

<˪ # zhuyin tone special for non-mandarin
<˫ # zhuyin tone special for non-mandarin

I checked with my colleague Claire, a native of Taiwan. She thinks the tones should have secondary CEs, ignorable on primary level.

Claire also says that the "first tone" is not written, and she does not know the symbol "ˉ". Wikipedia does not mention it either, the "Tones" comparison table shows no mark: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bopomofo

FYI, Wikipedia lists the "non-mandarin" tones as "Tone symbols for Taiwanese Hokkien".
