Finnish collation problems

Description

a)
There is this comment:
`<!-- For the phonebook collation, the only change is to collate v and w as separate characters, i.e.: -->`
This is not true – it would be true only if we used the `<collation type="standard" alt="proposed" draft="unconfirmed">` order, but the `<collation type="standard" >` is quite different.

We should review the standard vs. proposed rules and adjust or remove the comment.

b)
The "phonebook" rules contain this comment:
`# U+0291, LATIN SMALL LETTER Z WITH CURL, the last Z-like character.`
but this character does not occur in any of the Finnish rules. We should remove this comment.

c)
The fi/standard rules include `&D<<ð<<<Ð<<đ<<<Đ` and the proposed and phonebook rules include `&D\u0335<<đ<<<Đ`, but the default order is already `d<<d\u0335==đ`. It seems to me like the Finnish rules are not minimal, and should be reviewed and simplified.

Note: Kent Karlsson wrote to me: "I would very much like to see all of the Nordic collations consolidated (and no separate "phonebook" collation for Finnish). See , now a bit dated."
