Comment (by ijc):

 musicbrainz has an entirely separate "sortname" field for this
 purpose/problem. Perhaps the answer is to have such a field, set it from
 API provided data if an API supplies it and otherwise set it using some
 heuristic allowing it to be overridden?

 I had a look but it doesn't look on a quick glance like any of IMDB, TVDB
 nor my xmtlv-sdjson feed have anything like that field, which is a shame.
 Though with an overrideable heuristic and the possibility that APIs might
 one day provide this perhaps the extra field still make some sense.
