I apologize in advance if this is more of an XML Events question than an
XForms question, but I wasn't sure in which spec my question might be
answered.

If you have multiple listeners listening for a particular event at a
node, what (if anything) determines the order in which these listeners
will be dispatched when the event reaches the node?

For example (assuming that `xf` maps to the XForms namespace and `ev`
maps to the XML Events namespace):

  <xf:message ev:event="some-event" ev:observer="foo">Hello</xf:message>
  <!-- ... -->
  <xf:message ev:event="some-event" ev:observer="foo">World</xf:message>

When `some-event` reaches the node with ID "foo", would "Hello" precede
"World", would "World" precede "Hello", or would the effect be
implementation-defined, and why?

Take care,
