Sorted lists of revisions, such as history and contributions, are always
ordered by timestamp. This avoids misordering in cases such as undeletion and
Special:Import. Yes, there may be misordering of rev_timestamp due to clock
skew, but it will only be seconds, not years, so people will usually not notice
it. And edits to the same paragraph are always correctly ordered using
rev_timestamp since the edit conflict mechanism implicitly protects it.

Yes, Title::getNextRevisionID() uses rev_id, this is an unfortunate performance
hack and will lead to inaccurate results due to import and undelete.
