  In the "XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model"
document at
, it is suggested (in section 2.4) that the relative
order of Attribute Nodes is stable but
implementation-dependent. This means, that the @*[n]
expression (where n is a +ve integer) may give
different results between different implementations. 

Would it not be appropriate to make "the relative
order of Attribute Nodes" consistent across
implementations. If it cannot be made consistent
across implementations, I am curious to know the
reason behind this..
