absolutely agreed, order in serialization does not matter, since the only
thing that matters is the model represented in RDF. so what you're saying
is that even though pages clearly do follow some order, entries on a page
are randomly ordered? that's a bit inconsistent and, in many scenarios
that we use, would not be terribly helpful. we have a lot of UI things
driven by interactions with collections, and users do expect both pages as
well as entries within a page to follow the ordering that's matters for
the application.
