Sorting of arcpy.ListTransformations result list

We are currently using a python dictionary which contains the transformation names with best accuracy for defined source and target coordinate systems for several python scripts where coordinate transformations have to be performed automatically. As we are getting data from lots of different countries with different source coordinate sytems, we were wondering if "arcpy.ListTransformations" could be of any help for us. Does anyone know, if the result list of this function is sorted by accuracy, so that the first list item could be used as default tranformation method? I've done some tests with a few coordinates that gave me that impression, but unfortunately the german ESRI Support neither wanted to confirm nor to deny it.
