   Re: [xml-dev] RE : [xml-dev] Comparison of Xml documents

  You can use the RELAX NG "interleave" patterns to say that a schema
  processor shouldn't check the relative order of the elements with
  virtually no restrictions.

Yes but that  says that both a,b,c and b,a,c etc are allowed, it doesn't
say whether an application should treat these as the same thing, which
is the point at issue here. 
<a x="1" y="2"/> is specified in the xml rec as meaning the same as
<a y="2" x="1"/>, but I don't think any of the schema languages can say

<a><x>1</x><y>2</y></a> means the same as <a><y>2</y><x>1</x></a>
they can only say whether these are both valid (or not).
