Autocomplete suggestions sort exact match first

We have a client who has Inventory IDs that may be used as portions of other related Inventory IDs. For instance items "XYZ-123" and "A-XYZ-123".  When entering Inventory IDs in fields with auto-complete enabled such as Sales Order Entry if a user keys "XYZ-123" the auto-complete suggestions alphabetizes found matches putting "A-XYZ-123" first so after keying the desired Inventory ID and pressing Enter the item is changed to the "A-.." item instead of what they keyed.

If the auto-complete suggestions could sort with exact match value, if any, first in the auto-complete suggestions list this would easily resolve this issue.

We have informed them using the Tab key will move to the next field without changing the keyed value to the selected auto-complete suggestion it still would be helpful if the suggestion list could be fixed with exact match values first.
