I would not rely on specifying the bit_order.  On the other hand,
the value of the Default_Bit_Order constant can be useful in
a record representation clause to control the bit positions you use,
when combined with tricks using multiplication and Boolean'Pos().
This is of course left as an exercise to the reader...
