I think it is generally easier to pick up and learn and if there is a set
order to the elements.  Also, I think it makes it easier to go from one
document to another if you know where to look in the document for the
specific element you might be looking for.  Is there a specific reason to
not have a set order?  I'm having trouble imagining a case where it would be
necessary to change the order of the elements.
