I haven't yet seen those reports.  If they list vulnerabilities in the
same order I'd expect the output generators to require adjustments as well.

The PDF file already lists "Holes | Warnings | Notes" which seem to be
in the proper order already.

That's the least difficult part...

I'd expect a false positive to be less important than a low priority
vulnerability, so it'll be added at the right end of the scale.
