Excerpt from The Book of the Discipline (Vinaya-Pitaka), Vol. 2: Suttavibhanga

It has been truly and helpfully observed by the editors of Vinaya d104s that inside each class (of offence) the sequence of the clauses6 follows no invariable rule. Sometimes offences of a related character are placed together in groups, but sometimes those which would naturally come together are found scattered in quite different parts of the same class. In addition, as Oldenberg has pointed out,7 it not infrequently happens that a rule refers to the one immediately preceding it.
