| A related question: is it possible in XML Schema to distinguish
| between the case where the order of the element instances is
| important (significant) and where it is not?

Using sequence and all as described in

<URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#Model_Group_details >
should allow this.

| For example, clearly for a list of points denoting a shape, the
| order of the points is important. But for a set of points
| representing possible target positions, the order is not important.

Why do you think it is important to be able to distinguish between
these cases in the schema? Is it for the sake of clarity or is it for
other reasons?
