A minor note on example 4 [1].

It uses the tabbed interface as a use-case for the order (formerly flex-order) property. 
This is a cool use case, though both the use-case and its markup very much suggest that
the active tab's item will be above all the others. As this comes right after prose 
explaining order has 'no effect on stacking/layering' I found this somewhat muddled and
potentially confusing since order is being used to do the kind of layering we're being told
it doesn't really do. 

A possible way to clarify this may be to add some extra markup and/or a note to make it clear
this visual layering is a side-effect of sizing/positioning?
