Comment (by iwakeh):

 Assuming Sebastian's suggestion means to make the importance of sorting
 for guarding user privacy more visible I can think of the following
 options here:

 * state the importance of sorting the log lines by using something
 unrelated to the time of the event causing the entries (e.g., sorting
 * and state this more prominently at the beginning of section
 files 4.3].  The paragraph could start:
 Rewritten log lines are re-assembled into sanitized log files based on
 physical host, virtual host, and request start date.

 All rewritten log lines are sorted alphabetically, so that request order
 cannot be inferred from sanitized log files.

 The naming convention for ...

 And, the sentence starting with "As last and certainly not least ..." can
 be removed.

 If this addresses the concern of comment:63, I can provide a patch.
