Divya prabhandam arranged according to divyadesams

Respected Swamis:

Is there any edition of the Nalayira Divya Prabhandam with the pasurams 
arranged in the order of divyadesams,i.e. all the pasurams relating to one 
divyadesam in one palce?

If such an edition has been printed, is it available? Where is it available?

Such an edition would be very helpful to those who go on a pilgrimage to 
divyadesams. They can do an anusanthanam of the pasurams relating to that 
divyadesam where they are in. They do not have to go back and forth in the 
Prabhandam book, particularly if more than one alwar has sung that 
divyadesam, searching for the pasurams. When a group of people go on such 
pilgrimage and want to do the anusanthanam, such a search is very tedious.

Is such an edition changing the order of the pasurams is permitted by 
tradition? Who has decided on the present arrangement?

Which is an authoritative edition of the Prabhandam which identifies the 
pasurams relating to each divyadesam?

A lot of questionss. Adiyen would be grateful for any clarifications.
