so this is a possible solution.

it's probably do-able but will be tricky to write and may have unfortunate 
side effects.

i was thinking that maybe we should have betwixt order elements by default 
in alphabetic order. at least that way it's obviously deterministic (since 
bean introspection doesn't seem to be) and people who have control of 
their own DTDs know how to write them so that they are compatible with 
betwixt's defaults.

i don't know if this would solve your problem...
