Description
The "natural ordering" of elements in some collection is a concept expressed best
in the doc for Comparable, but this is not always obvious to the user of some
collection class that refers to the "natural ordering" concept.
Using {@linkplain Comparable natural ordering} in many places throughout the
Collections framework makes this much clearer.

A number of references to this concept use the phrase "natural order", but
we are using "natural ordering" in a very precise technical sense, so we should
replace all uses of "natural order" with "natural ordering".
