We've already started adding Canonical Order lines to a number of
modules; it's part of the module template.

We don't necessarily need to do any of these immediately to address
the properties that aren't yet covered; it would just mean that
property serialization order for some properties isn't yet defined.
But as we have the time to do the research, I think my preference
would either be for (2) above or for a wiki that would eventually
get included in appropriate modules once it was complete.
