It is worth noting that, until recently, one reason why routes weren't
sorted is that one
of the editors didn't maintain sort order when modifying a route, nor did
it seem to
have a way of sorting the route manually.  That changed a few months ago,
so perhaps
an increasing number of routes will be sorted.  You still can't depend on
it, though.
