Nobody encoded the file in a special manner. It just happens to be a
file used on windows, by a windows program, and as such should stay in
CR/LF format. I am not sure why you say LF and CR are swapped, I don't
see it myself, and vim tells me it is in DOS (e.g. CR/LF) format.

It does matter. Although text editors are generally smart about line
endings, other windows softwares are not.
