Finnish collation problems

There is this comment:
<!-- For the phonebook collation, the only change is to collate v and w as separate characters, i.e.: -->
This is not true -- it would be true only if we used the <collation type="standard" alt="proposed" draft="unconfirmed"> order, but the <collation type="standard" > is quite different.
We should review the standard vs. proposed rules and adjust or remove the comment.
The "phonebook" rules contain this comment:
# U+0291, LATIN SMALL LETTER Z WITH CURL, the last Z-like character.
but this character does not occur in any of the Finnish rules. We should remove this comment.
The fi/standard rules include &D<<ð<<<Ð<<đ<<<Đ and the proposed and phonebook rules include &D\u0335<<đ<<<Đ, but the default order is already d<<d\u0335==đ. It seems to me like the Finnish rules are not minimal, and should be reviewed and simplified.
Note: Kent Karlsson wrote to me: "I would very much like to see all of the Nordic collations consolidated (and no separate "phonebook" collation for Finnish). See ticket:3059, now a bit dated."
