I knew I should have phrased that example better.

Out of order replies are not the whole problem.  Imagine if all 4 cgi
scripts wrote output at the same time.  Regardless of the order question,
the server would still need to queue three of them.  The efficiency loss
from such queuing would almost surely overwhelm any benefit of
simultaneous execution.
