No it is not, UCS encoding has different order
in different representations:
UTF-8 and UTF-32 order is consistent i.e.
for each a,b in utf8(a) < utf8(b) iff utf32(a) < utf32(b)
However this is not correct for UTF-16 where codepoints
outside of BMP has different ordering. i.e.
It may be that codepoint (a) > codepoint(b) but UTF-16(a) sorted before
