Exactly. But to get a schema to allow certain children in any order, you
have to check it every time, nes'pa?

I suppose they really meant that they wanted to __read__ the schema and
discover that any order would be allowed, rather than to __validate__ each
time. But the question posed was for validation each time. You have to
read the instance document for that. I bet you could use it to set up a
stylesheet - maybe run a fast SAX pass first to just observe the order and
give the information to the stylesheet.
Maybe I better get my tongue out of my cheek before I bite it...
