No, I'm waiting for some kind of conclusion on the discussion started at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Oct/0581.html

As it stands:

Using algorithm-order requires a fair bit of complexity to avoid loops and
cannot reuse general collection code which only supports document-order.

Using document-order would require either first doing the above and then
sorting, or first doing a more limited traversal to determine which id's should
be included and after that walking the entire document.

Both are more complex than any other type of collection, neither is impossible,
but my guesstimate is that algorithm-order for everything (including the
NodeList returned by .getItems()) would be easier, but as I said I'm waiting
for the conclusion of the above discussion to see if there can't be an
<itemref>-free solution.

Leaving as NEEDSINFO, myself being the one who needs info.
