It occurred to me that the User stories and user testing sections should 
be swapped.

While our target users, designers and developers are mostly interested 
in "what to do" the User Stories are (or should be) the foundation of 
everything else. They provide the context and justification of why the 
design guide exists and what the Objectives and patterns are addressing.

Specifically, the start of each User Stories section is "This leads to 
the following user stories:" which is the complete reverse of how things 
should be. The User stories lead to everything else.
