Are all the UIDs on a key supposed to be equal?

Are all the user-ids (combinations of name, e-mail address and comment)
equal, or can one be the "primary" one?
I started to generate a new key because the old has several obsolete
e-mail addresses in the UIDs. I gave my "main" e-mail address and
comment in response to the "gpg --gen-key" prompts, then used "gpg
--edit-key" to add UIDs. When I then listed the key, they were out of
order. I had been under the impression (maybe it was just coincidence
with my previous key) that the first UID is the main one.
