My thought has been that Natural Order is always the natural order, until people start assuming that their long-travel Enduro bike makes them fastest. It would feel mean/awkward to tell that guy to move aside, so then the faster guy on the understated bike needs to either wait for the chance to make a race pass, or be perceived as a budging jerk like those French and Spanish journalists. This is why I like to randomly switch it up when I'm riding with new people. Shuffle up the order to settle uncertainties, and see who can really keep on who's tail. There's no debate when the person was just on your tail for half the descent and now you can't keep up to them for the other half - next time, they'll go first from the top.
