Hm, yeah. Having the order exposed anywhere is unfortunate, but I guess it is
exposed in the DOM since you can enumerate them... Maybe the enumeration should
have a fixed order (alphabetical?) or some such? Seems bad to make the parser
have to track order, and it seems bad that UAs would have to keep track of the
order (since for some elements, UAs might want to store certain attribute
values in custom ways rather than keeping them in an ordered map with all the
other attributes).
