Assume you write code:

create overlay, set evaporate property, change begin and end of the overlay

Now change the order:

create overlay, change begin and end of the overlay, set evaporate property

I say that we want the same result in both cases.  Therefore the
current state is what we want.

There is no substitute for experience.
