In XSLT 2.0, the collation used by xsl:key is not necessarily Unicode
codepoint order. To build an index, you need to store the key value as a
sequence of collation units, not as a sequence of Java chars or Unicode
codepoints. So I suspect that what you really want is the highest collation
unit in the particular collation used for the key in question.
(Actually, xsl:key only supports equality semantics, not ordering semantics.
But I can see that you probably want to implement indexes that also support
ordering semantics. It's likely that these too would need to be
