Why would events talking about the same (virtual) voice ever arrive 
out of order?

I don't think it's unreasonable to require that event order is 
preserved. The way I see it, control event streams are basically 
multichannel, interleaved, variable rate, structured "audio" streams. 
If you can stream audio without scrambling the samples, you can 
stream timestamped events without randomly reordering them.
