XForms CR - E3 - structuring content of inputmode attribute

The initial paragraph of E3 indicates, "In inputmode attributes, script 
tokens should always be listed before modifiers."

What is the meaning of this statement? Should an XForms processor ever 
indicate an error or exception if a modifier precedes a script token?

If that is not the case, what is the point of the "should always" in the 
current text?

For the avoidance of doubt the above points are sent to 
www-forms-editor@w3.org with the expectation of receiving a formal response 
from the XForms Working Group, ideally with appropriate clarification in a 
future draft of the XForms specification.

I would also be interested to better understand the approach not only of 
allowing structure within the content of an attribute but specifying an 
ordering of that structure.

You may be aware that SVG has received some criticism for allowing styling 
properties to be combined within the SVG style attribute. However, there is 
no ordering prescribed by the SVG 1.0 Recommendation.
