Alignment is about the positioning of boxes relative to their containing blocks, and `order` has nothing to do with that. So I think it wouldn't make sense there.

CSS Box Model focuses on margins and paddings and defining the various box areas. I don't think `order` really fits into there either.

CSS Display focuses on the construction of the box tree, and `order` effectively reorders elements in the box tree. This is why I think it's the best fit.

Note the +1 from @rachelandrew, who teaches this stuff. If she felt it was an uncertain fit, I think she would not have marked +1.
