I mentioned on the call that the people who would have problems with order
are those using dumb or broken data binding tools. There are specs that have
made and continue to make such allowances, but I think this is a lot of
effort for the rest of us to help people using broken tools.

(A similar argument exists regarding making allowances for people that
insist on using non-XML tools to process XML.)
