We already have all those prefixes registered for French, as you can see

Except maybe "Petit chemin" and "Petit passage" that I'll try to add

The accent ordering problem is known. It's because we can't easily order
Unicode strings yet (ordering is language dependent, and a tricky
subject of linguistics). That's not a top-priority for us at the moment,
but we of course welcome any proposition to make the index better :)

Thanks for your input,
