Thank you, I was not aware of this. Is this documented somewhere?
The wiki seems to lack a comprehensive table of contents.

Most likely because you already know what it does. For us newbies
it's pretty mysterious.

If I understood how it worked, I would be happy to.

Shows how? This is not obvious to me. Are there examples
somewhere? If they are not connected then are we supposed to move
them around till they are? If so how does one guess where they
are supposed to go?

Okay, so how, if at all, does this apply to US highway route
relations? Is order meaningful for them? If so what should it be?
