My take. Stacking is different to flaking.

Stacking is random loops on top of each other (like a bowl of spaghetti).

Flaking is lots of 8's layed over each other. The term comes from flaking a sail. If you've seen a mainsail being flaked and look at the cross-section you'll understand.

Flaking: Thus
