Hello everyone,

has anything been said about the order of dead properties so far? When a
PROPFIND with DAV:allprop is issued on a resource, should a server
return the dead properties in the order in which they where defined, or
should the order be arbitrary? Since the element names have to be unique
for one resource, I guess it wouldn't make much sense to interpret any
logic into the order of the property elements, but since the order of
elements in XML documents is defined, some applications might expect the
properties in the order in which they were inserted.

Any ideas on that?

thanks,
    Heiko
