Erik, what I had in mind when I wrote the final parenthetical was someone 
believing that the order of "members" in the *serialization* of a single 
page carries significance.  That's what doesn't make much sense in the 
same breath as RDF (or Jena as the common implementation).  Certainly one 
can add it to the RDF content if the usage scenario warrants it.
