Be certain: 'some restriction' and just 'improperly' are not good
problem descriptions.

I would use wording like the following.

I checked sqlite3 check-in 8000d230 (it is immediate predecessor of
c9104b59 where the flattening optimization seems to be changed, but
tarantool didn't updated with that check-in). It has the assert, but has
no a change like yours, and correctly shows the following error:

Error: ORDER BY clause should come after UNION ALL not before

Why it is so?

All -> ALL
