During the advanced collections teleconference today, Kevin Wiggen raised
the issue of what the results look like when a DASL query, without an
orderby clause, is submitted to an ordered collection.  The consensus, at
least among the people attending the teleconference, was that in this case,
the DASL response should return the result set using the collection's
ordering.

That is,

IF as a server you implement ordered collections THEN
   IF (a DASL query is submitted to an ordered collection AND no orderby
clause is specified) THEN
       return the DASL results using the collection's ordering
   ENDIF
ENDIF

Does this make sense to others as well?
