But you're suggesting it has a wanted track order where, for some reason
or other, they haven't actually named the songs themselves?

I mean, step one is "copy them into the folder." Step two is "name them
so they're in the right order." Right? (And this is assuming they create
the mix folder on their PC, rather than just inserting the songs into a
playlist). I don't think it's particularly likely that, while renaming
songs, they'll just choose to skip ones that are named differently and
hope they'll be in the right place.
