Yes, you are completely right. Also, let me clarify something: pushing this documentation change does not mean I intend to break the order of options at a whim. Not at all. In practice, nothing will change, almost. But it means that if there is a strong need to change the order, we can consider it comfortably, and without wasting valuable developer time with compatibility workarounds. Regarding the exact rule: we could document that there are some options we do not intend to touch (essential options), but what would be the point, really? Do we require users to learn the list by rote? Are they supposed to look in the documentation each time? The rule "use named options, it will keep working" is simple, easy to remember, and the extra requirement (write "x=", "y=", essential options are usually short) is minimal and small compared to the task of learning which option would be stable and which would not. With that said, what about this change?
