Description Happy-melon 2010-01-14 16:38:46 UTC
As best I can tell, the four functions in EditPage.php that add messages above the edit window add them in approximately the following order:
   1. interface editnotice
   2. no-such-user warning
   3. Custom editintro supplied by &editintro= GET parameter
   4. new-article help
   5. log extract for deletion/move logs
   6. talk page editnotice
   7. Per-namespace editnotices, and per-page editnotices where those are still (accidentally) enabled
   8. Edit conflict warning
   9. warning you get if you try to create a new section and save it with no text
  10. force-edit-summary-warning
  11. force-edit-summary-warning for new sections
  12. Messages generated by hooks such as Capthas, AbuseFilter, etc
  13. warning about browsers that mangle unicode
  14. warnings related to RevDelete
  15. editing-an-old-revision warning
  16. warning about the wiki being locked
  17. not-logged-in warning
  18. JS warning
  19. JS/CSS preview notices
  20. warning about semi-protection or full-protection or cascading protection or creation protection
  21. long page error or warning

A logical order would have the most general notices ([[MediaWiki:readonlywarning]] and then [[Mediawiki:Talkpagetext]]) first, followed by namespace-specific notices (all of which could/should be implemented through the per-namespace editnotice system), followed by per-page editnotices and finally warnings about the particular edit the user is trying to make.  And they should be added in a consistent fashion that ensures they are properly parsed, don't get random extra classes added to them, and have consistent ids.

Adding the "design" keyword to get a visual and/or UI designer's help on this.
