When you say that the order can't be relied on, do you mean:
(a) within a run of a stylesheet?
(b) between two runs of a stylesheet?
(c) between two XSLT processors?
I'm pretty sure that it's only the latter; on a quick scan I can't
find anything that says that the attributes must be in the same order
even within a run, although I can't conceive of a processor ever doing
