If you can trust the site, and I am not sure I do, this is the 29,000th thread started on this site. Congratulations.

In this phrase and in others like 'qua de causa' in the other thread isn't the primary purpose of the order to do with the linking relative?

As Latin didn't have punctuation, ordering the words in this manner acts sort of like punctuation.
