Ditto for attribute order.

Thinking back to XML 1.0, why is it that attributes are not ordered?

It seems incongruous given that attributes are declared by an attribute list declaration, implying ordering of attributes. I appreciate that Chapter 3 of XML 1.0 (1st Edition) refers to a "set" of attribute specifications.
