I'm not sure I'm following here--at least using Java RuleBasedCollator you should be able to achieve any collation sequence whatsoever.
But I'm not sure what you mean by sorting 646 before 10646.
A possible algorithm is that any sequence of digits counts as a single collation unit, which is collated before the first collation unit derived from non-digit characters, and has a collation value equal to its decimal value.
I don't believe you can achieve this with a RuleBasedCollator.
