You can use an array to set order. This is a place where I wish FXSL
would be more like the (reference?) implementation org.json's java
library where when an object  or array is encountered in the JSON, the
resulting XML is wrapped with 'o' and 'a' elements respectively.

Don't use JSON if you need to work with mixed content. It is not what is
made for.

Bottom line - there is no standardization. If you want to do xml2json
and json2xml you pick your library and write for it.
