Developers using this component are responsible to use it correctly, but just as a warning, maybe it should be mentioned that using this sorting component in combination with some filter functionality, like it is done in the demo, can allow the user to mess up the order of the elements to be sorted.

As an example, in the demo, if you filter by "t t", you will get two elements as result of the filtering. Depending on the current order of all the elements, the sorting of the two elements can mess up with order of the elements, resulting in two elements having the same order.
