Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Adherence to "intended usage" is not a sufficient reason to make breaking
 changes. We'll only make changes that break backward compatibility if the
 current usage patterns - even if those patterns are "unintended" - are
 causing practical problems. Aside from the mild confusion that might
 result from PHP's sorting algorithms, I can't think of any actual bugs
 that would come out of the current behavior. We should not make breaking
 changes for academic reasons.

 If the problem is that the actual behavior doesn't match the docs, then we
 should update the docs.
