A simple use cases that we have illustrating why order by creation date isn’t enough:
- Create a vocabulary with about 20 category in it.
- Let authors categorize content with it for a few months
- get a request to add a new category in 6 position in that vocabulary
- ?!?!? We can’t do date at the moment.
If it’s ordered by creation date, the new categories are obviously added at the end, which is not what we want in some/most case.
