I think that's a matter of opinion and it's an area where the document
designer should not be constrained by what the tools allow and don't allow.

My own recent experience of creating documents whose schema imposed an order
that I found unnatural and impossible to remember was a very negative one. I
actually ended up editing without a schema and writing a stylesheet to put
the fields into the required order.
