Shows a wording proposal of 19 September 2007 intended to resolve this issue.

A wording proposal for this issue is attached as b2947.html
(or will be if I get the mechanics right).  The salient properties
of the proposal are:  

  1 change the definition of 'ordered' to appeal to the table
    in the appendix, not to the specification of a 
    non-trivial order.
  2 de-emphasize the question of triviality vs. non-triviality;
    it is a possibly relevant mathematical point, not the basis
    of any difference between conforming and non-conforming
    schemas or processors, or between valid and invalid
    documents or values.
  3 remove or recast the places where the spec currently 
    says that an order relation is specified for all value 
    spaces, to say that an order relation is specified for
    some value spaces and not for others.

Owing to haste on my part, the proposal has NOT had the normal editorial
