I disagree. Declarative processing just defines what you need to compute 
without necessarily providing a sequential algorithm to do it. However, you 
may declare the process to be sequential.

For example, all of the examples below are declarative ways to apply a 
function to each element of the array, but only the last one specifying the 
order of execution.

example 1: map(function, array)
example 2: foreach _ in array yield function(_);
example 3: for i in 1..length(array) yield function(a[i])
