 I am a bit confused over the control cnstruct " unordered" as defined 
in DAML-S 0.7:

Let a, b, c, and d be atomic processes, and X, Y, and Z be composite 
processes:
X = (Sequence a b)
Y = (Sequence c d)
Z = (Unordered A B)

 do X & Y correspond to A & B respectively or am I missing something.

Z, then, translates to the following partial ordering:
{(a;b), (c;d)}
where ';' means \executes before", and the possible execution sequences 
(total
orders) include
{(a;b;c;d), (a;c;b;d), (a;c;d;b), (a;c;d;b),
(c;d;a;b), (c;a;d;b), (c;a;b;d)}

are the repeition of execution sequence ordering a typo or intentional.

Any comments will be helpful.

Thanks

Monika
