For properties we said we will not allow ordering per-item because it is way too much work and not really easy to keep consistent across all items. That is why they are sorted automatically based on one large ordered list of properties.
If we really need order then I think we need to figure out:
- how are ranks and qualifiers playing together there
- which qualifiers do we have that meaningfully imply an order
- are there other things than rank and qualifiers that imply an order
