All the examples you give are non-specific to the completion-style used,
whereas the `flx` scoring seems more directly related to the
completion style.

I guess one could consider `flx` scoring as just another kind of
sorting, but I'm pretty sure that it can give odd results when used
with (say) regexp-style completion.

So maybe, another way to look at it is that there are several sorting
choices, one of them being provided by the completion-style.
