I think you can insert a comma after "when it is the first entry in the stream"? I think that would make it a bit clearer that there are two cases.

Also I'm wondering if the paragraph should be split into two, meaning "When the Manifest ..."  can be the start of a new paragraph. The reason is that the text is trying to explain two things, the first is that the manifest must be at the start of the JAR file, the second is that the ordering that methods are invoked will influence how other methods behave.
