well, I don't think so (except for tree which is doing the-wrong-thingy-always): they do keep all state on sort, but
not on replace-in-different-sequence - which is correct, I think: it's the semantic of the change notification that
must rule, not some assumption of the view.

If a replace-in-different-sequence is required to be interpretated as a permutation in a particular use-case, the place
to implement it would be a custom list that checks for that corner case and sends a notification of type wasPermutated
(instead of a wasReplaced).
