10.2 Selecting variables
If SELECT * is used, what is order of the variables in the result?
Perhaps the answer is that it is irrelevant because results are
necessarily returned with the names of the variables.  This is certainly
true of the XML format for returning results.  However, this format is
not mandated.  If you do not care to specify the order of variables in
SELECT *, then you should specify that results must be presented in a
format that identifies the variable names.
