Site Health: Status items order

It might not be clear to the user what the items order currently means on /wp-admin/site-health.php within the recommended-, critical- and passed tests lists.

One could wonder if the first item within each list the most important one?

If there's no actual importance ordering within each list, what about grouping (ordering) the items by the badge label? So all performance items would be grouped together and all security items grouped together within each list. Then e.g. use item's title ordering as a secondary ordering.

On the other hand, if there is an actual importance ordering, it would be informative to know.

This would prove difficult, there are currently only two priorities: Critical and Recommended.

Critical items should be handled as soon as possible, recommended items when time permits, that's really it.

The content of each section can also dynamically change, as tests are running behind the scenes and results are added as processing of them are completed, I'm not sure how this would align with everything else.

There's also the aspect of the badges being a free text field, so plugins and themes might add their own as well.

I'm not really sure if this is something we should change (it's doable, but I don't see the effort being worth it, to be honest).

I'm closing this out as maybelater, if we at any point get feedback about this being a problem, we can revisit then.
