I have been removing support for the XML results format attributes in ARQ as 
per the decision yesterday.  ARQ will continue to read the both variations of 
the format (and ignore the attributes) and write strict output.

In the test suite material (tests/data) there is some use of ordered="true". 
Much of it from using "ORDER BY" for presentation reasons.  All uses are 
interpeting ordered="true" to mean the result set is totally ordered.

This can be fixed as the test suite is moved to the publishing area 
tests/data-r2 : firstly, remove unnecessary ORDER BY for queries as Jeen did 
for expr-builtin;  secondly, use the RDF encoding for tests that that are 
testing ORDER BY.

The RDF test results format has indexes for solutions so gives a total ordering.

There is also the JSON format to change as well.
And the XSLT/XQuery examples.

First time after removing attribute support, I had 21 test failures in teh ARQ 
test suite.  All were fixed by either removing unnecessary ORDER BY or using 
the RDF form.
