Does BroadcastChannel preserve the message order if the receiver is in a different geo-location?

I wasn't able to find the answer to your question in the official Deno documentation. However, based on the general behavior of BroadcastChannel, it is designed to maintain the order of messages as they are posted. When you post messages to a BroadcastChannel, they are typically dispatched in the same order they were sent. This is true within the same context (e.g., the same origin or site). However, when considering different geo-locations, it's important to note that BroadcastChannel is generally used for communication between browsing contexts on the same origin, and it's not intended for use across different geo-locations or across the internet. If you're referring to a scenario where you have multiple servers or workers in different locations, you would likely need a different mechanism that guarantees message order across distributed systems, such as a message queue with ordering guarantees. Please note that this advice is not based on the Deno documentation, and I would advise you to double-check the accuracy of this advice, possibly by testing the behavior or consulting more detailed specifications or resources on BroadcastChannel and message ordering in distributed systems.
