(a). Note that the 'ordered' filter operates on the matches
generated by the preceding FTOr (operates on each match independent
of the others). In this case, each of those matches will have two
StringIncludes, either one for 'A' and one for 'B', or else one for 'C'
and one for 'D'. So there's no way that the filter could enforce the 
constraints described in (b) and (c).

That one is also equivalent.

The addition of the 'ordered' filter has no effect on the result
of the FTSelection.

>   g) ('A' | 'B') & ('C' | 'D') ordered

The search content must contain [an 'A' or a 'B'] that is followed by
[a 'C' or a 'D'].

>   h) ('A' & !'B') ordered

The search context must contain an 'A' that is not followed by a 'B'.
