It seems that the easiest solution is the following

    -  run iso-unaccentuate (which runs on regions) on the table, which
       will change Álvarez to 'Alvarez,

    -  sort. The sorting is ok

    -  reconvert via iso-accentuate the table.

I don't understand much of the org-table sort code. My naive approach would be 

org-table-iso-accentuate and org-table-iso-unaccentuate and then add
that via defadvice to the original function, but that seems a bad
approach since defacvice makes it difficult to debug.

Any suggestions?
