Hi Albert,

In our work on public transport time schedules, our datasets are 
hydra:Collections with a hydra:PartialCollectionView with hydra:next 
links in between. A route planning algorithm downloading the data needs 
to know that the departures of the trains/buses/... are ordered by 
departureTime. Today we do this by assuming the result of our 
hydra:search template will give an ordered result (as we defined our own 
URI for this anyway: 

You can find more information, a specification, a demo, and source code 
over here: https://linkedconnections.org. The benchmarks we ran are 
focused on getting a high user perceived performance of route planning 
queries by iterating over this paged collection (available on the github 
and a paper [1]).

We’re now also looking for a way to introduce ordering in paged 
collections on the Web. We’re thinking about proposing an extension to 
hydra:PartialCollectionView where an ordering would be able to be 
indicated, although I still have to look what has been discussed in the 
past about this matter.

Hope this helps,
