If the ordering of class names were supposed to to have some special
significance, there would be further information about such a specific
order. In this case a lack of evidence points to no importance in the
order of the class names.

Attributes are unordered because if they were, it would make life a
lot more difficult for those using them. Likewise for class names.

Some browsers do impose their own ordering on the attributes, and
other scripts may affect the ordering of class names too. As such any
reliance on a particular order is liable to fall apart rather quickly.
