Does ordinal-group change drawing order

Option 1
Draw strictly in source order

Option 2
Draw in ordinal order, then in source order Note

Resolved @FTF: Option2

Flexbox children are rendered in order of ordinal groups (a.k.a. box tree order). Appendix E may or may not need an update (if it is defined to refer to "box tree" it automatically requires to render in ordinal group order).
