(no spoilers, read freely)

I assume chaos demons catalyze the spontaneous decomposition of order and
structure into disorder.  It's the potential inherent in the order that's
being expended.

If they can generate order without having to draw on order, merely creating
chaos, they can do some really nasty things to the laws of thermodynamics.
Perhaps they don't break physics but just bend it a little - getting the
order now and paying for it later, instead of always paying up front as
engineers must.
