[sword-devel] Hyphens in book names

So is the problem that these languages generally have U+002D (hyphen/minus)
originating from an easy to type workaround for normal keyboards (even going
back to mechanical typewriters!), and that everyone got used to doing this?

If so, what would the SWORD API do with U+2010 (General punctuation block -
HYPHEN), if all instances where U+002D had been used as a letter were
replaced by U+2010  ?

Or is there an even more suitable alternative codepoint somewhere in another
block of the BMP ?

PS. For parsing booknames, what does the API do with figure dash U+2012 and
ndash U+2013 ?
