You have to verify that the following assumptions hold for your
collation rules:

    . TAB is collated before printable characters
    . blank space and punctuation are *not* ignored in collation

Unresolved @Roman&&1 xref looks hints that the first assumtion doesn't
seem to hold.  This is easy to verify, look at the standard.li and
check that 2&&1 line goes before 2&&10 line (where 2 is the number
assigned to @Roman, i.e. there's a line 00symbol 2 @Roman at the
beginning of the file).

If you don't have "unstructured" text outside large scale structures,
I think, I would start with "reportf", avoiding redundant @Text
