But then again I can't really say I'm convinced that it's a good thing
that 'order' affects painting order at all.

    <div style="display:flex;">
      <div id="a" style="order:3;">a</div>
      <div id="b" style="position:relative; order:2;">b</div>
      <div id="c" style="position:relative;">c</div>
      <div id="d" style="position:relative; z-index:-1; order:4;">d</div>
    </div>

Painting order will here be d-a-c-b? So we have two levels of paint
ordering? Isn't this just confusing?

(doesn't sound very pleasant to implement, either)
