1. Press Cmd+N to open a new browser window, then type https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Project:MDN in the address bar and press Enter
2. Inspect the subnavigation below the headline with the developer tool of your choice
3. See that a ordered list is used in the navigation. 

as the HTML spec says[1]: "The ol element represents a list (or sequence) of items; that is, a list in which the items are intentionally ordered, such that changing the order would change the meaning of the list."

this navigation has no specific reading sequence and the <ol> should therefor be replaced with a <ul> IMHO.

Making this block bug 910513 so that we consider it for the redesign. We even have the following link which does this automatically.

My opinion is that the zone subnav's meaning would change if it were ordered differently.  Those items are ordered the way they are for a reason.  The same reason chapters are ordered the way they are in a book.
