Also there is a "primary user id" flag specified in OpenPGP it's semantics
are not very clear because you may have more than one of these
"primary user ids". A solution to this problem would be to reorder
(while displaying) the user IDs based on that flag and the creation
date of the user ID (as defined by the self-signature).

There is no need for an application to keep one order.
