Ah.  DTDs have no equivalent of xs:all at all.   You either have
to tighten up the content model and require ordering, or loosen
it and allow multiple fnames and lnames.

My advice, if this is a real problem and not a mere test, would
be to go with commonName, sortName anyhow, because you cannot
be guaranteed to have just two parts to a name, nor which part is
appropriate to sort on:

<personnel>
    <commonName>George W. Bush</commonName>
    <sortName>Bush, George W.</sortName>
</personnel>

vs.

<personnel>
    <commonName>DavÝ­ Oddsson</commonName>
    <sortName>DavÝ­ Oddsson</sortName>
</personnel>
