If there's a compelling reason for keeping it, which Eric just
demonstrated, I'm all for keeping the order. All I was saying is that
without such a reason, I don't think it's worth going out of our way to
keep it, and that not guarateeing it's kept gives us more flexibility if
needed.
Since it's actually important to keep thing ordered, case is closed.
