In the RDF M&S is the syntax of RDF given in BNF. So, if we have for 
example: 
  [6.3] description    ::= '<rdf:Description' idAboutAttr? bagIdAttr? propAttr* '/>'

This would mean that the idAboutAttr should stand befor the bagIdAttr, like

<rdf:Description about="..." bagID="..." ...

and not

<rdf:Descriptin bagID="..." about="..." ...

For example SiRPAC does not care about the order. 

So, is it a syntactic feature inherited from XML not to care about the 
order of attributes?
