Bob Newson just said that pretty emphatically.

If you want your index to be sorted in a particular way, then emit keys that sort that way!
Don’t try to find some undocumented hack that lets you get away without emitting properly
ordered keys.

 Is that a behavior that CAN be replied on?

Definitely not. And a properly written map function shouldn’t care anyway — if your map
function uses any sort of external state that could distinguish the order in which docs are
passed to it, then You’re Doing It Wrong.
