So far, there is no part talking about the snaks-order. Was that on purpose or jsut because it wasn't there at the point it got last updated? So- should I add a part about skan-orders?
Fixing the last minor issues and uploading a patch then!

yes, please document how we represent order, if we do. There is four places where we (should) do this:

  1. The order of statements (implies the order of statement groups)
  2. The order of qualifier snaks in a statement
  3. The order of references on a statement
  4. The order of snaks in a reference.

Also, the new example might be a big too long. I didn't want to change the data, that's why I just pasted the whole json of the Item in there, but it seems to be a bit too much.
For claims and statments, I didn't update the data, that is actually in the mainsnak because it would not be very clear if it's in there additionally to all the other information.
