Yes XML is ordered but it's never clear without a schema whether it is
significant.  Adding, say <results ordered="false"> would say it wasn't
(no ORDER BY present).

I'd slightly favour requiring the attribute to be present always as it's
clear in SPARQL query whether ordering was requested - either ORDER BY
was there, or it wasn't.  There is no "don't know".
