xslt sort computed
The simplest way of doing this in XSLT 1.0 is probably to use a
multi-pass transformation. In the first pass, build a temporary tree
containing the computed sort keys. In the second pass (done using
xx:node-set()), do the sort.

In XSLT 2.0 you can compute the sort key using an xsl:function.
