And since I know that encoders in this community, by habit and tool, enter attributes in a certain order, I'd like the displayed order to be document order.

I got irritated with an application recently where attributes were serialized inconsistently - not because the order of attributes is information-bearing, but because consistency of presentation helps the human reader find information quickly. So the next Saxon release includes a serialization property to control attribute order on output.
