If you are collecting data from a number of sources over a network,
their time-stamped data can come in out of order. If you know exactly
what sort of data to expect, you can wait to get enough to pre-sort
and commit to the series, but in some cases either you don't know what
sort of data to expect, or things get lost in the network so waiting
for something to come is risky. So, appending pre-sorted data may not
be the only scenario that matters, if I'm understanding your
discussion correctly.
