Nope. There is no useful ordering between scripts, and many scripts have non-agreed-on ordering within them. Well, so they have "some information", but not useful to "alphabetize the IDN TLDs" or even "figure out where IDN TLDs appear in a list of all TLDs".

None of this has anything to do with DNS operations. That's the whole point of the IDNA encoding.
