I don't really like the idea of enforcing ordering since then it isn't 100% JSON anymore. A SHOULD in the spec and describing the advantage of allowing one-pass processing should do it IMHO. The use case isn't important enough to break "compliance" with standard JSON and I doubt that a lot of people will use JSON-LD in a streaming-mode.
