All of the commands are listed in that table, and are helpfully linked
to with anchor tags.

The commands are (as I explained in #376291) grouped by their
relatedness. Your change in ordering would, for example, move notfound
to be next to notfixed and merge, instead of being next to found, it's
obvious mate. [merge would be quite a bit away from forcemerge, and an
enternity would separate it and clone.]
I don't object to changes in ordering which would improve it, but
alphabetical ordering is not an improvement.
