I haven't found a definitive source for this, but as far as I know, your
assumption breaks as soon as a third button is added. Then the typical
alternative order is not the reverse of the original one. See this

 standard:     [Reset] [Cancel] [OK]
 alternative:  [Reset] [OK] [Cancel]

I might be totally wrong here, but that's how we are arranging the
buttons based on feedback from Windows users.
