Should be possible on the Dired level.

That is already available (e.g., sorting by size is triggered by the
"-S" switch).

I think that one important conclusion from this discussion is that we
need to have a way to sort files names in a way that is at least
partially compliant with UTS#10, to produce listings that are similar
to what 'ls' does on GNU systems under UTF-8 locales.  I hope someone
will step forward to write the necessary code.
