ISO 14651/14652 vs Unicode sorting

I have been informed that according to the tables distributed with ISO
14651/14652, the following strings should be sorted in this order:
> foo baz
Moreover, this is how glibc (and, as a corollary, all utilities) do
this in European locales on contemporary Linuxes.
I checked COBUILT, American Heritage, and Le Petit Robert II — and it
seems that they do indeed use this (brain damaged?) order. (Although
not, apparently, Le Petit Robert I — which SEEMS TO HAVE compound
words tackled at the end of the main record.)
However, this definitely contradicts what
does with the default locale, and with `en´.
So what is the intended behavior: of ICU, or of ISO?!
