this is irrelevant and if true, just so by chance
just because some list is long does not mean it should be in aphabetical order
similarely just because a list is short does not mean it should not be in
alphabetical order

a long enum or large struct doesnt have its members in alphabetical order
normally and even if it does its not possible to maintain this with public

so while i agree with the spirit of the change i dont agree at all with the
used wording

it rather should be something like

you should maintain alphabetical order in alphabetically ordered lists as
long as doing so does not break API/ABI compatibility
