Re:  Keep sequencing order of XML list of elements?
Actually ... I dont know where this is explicitly defined for XML itself ...
although it is explicitly defined for INFOSET


"An ordered list of child information items, in document order."

As well as for XPATH
... " nodes that are after the context node in document order is a forward axis. "

And with XDM

"[Definition: Document order is stable, which means that the relative order of two nodes will not change during the processing of a given query or transformation, even if this order is implementation-dependent.]"

( but note: its not uncommon for 'man in the middle' code to 'do something that mixes them up' ... ).
