But they won't necessarily know the exact name for each attribute
either, and the order depends on the exact name.
They are hopefully reasonably common names for the values, but there's
no standard for the names.
[Unlike say the names of countries or languages.]

But the problem is that it is Locale-specific.

Further, if we change the translation of any attribute, the order may change.

Whereas if we sort by attribute name, the order is fixed across
languages, and people can get used to where they are.
