That's true, but maybe not that critical, given that it's always easy for the server to add one more property to the container members to expose the value used for ordering.

There's two issues: how do clients request a particular sort order. And how do servers expose the sort order in a response. The current LDP spec doesn't address the first question. That's ok with me. It's a version one. It ought to answer the second question if we support paging, for the reasons Steve stated in the initial mail of this thread.
