Thanks for the link! I see now my idea violates the specification
which says (23.3) "When a child node is added to a node that has
orderable child nodes it is added to the end of the list." My idea was
to add the child node according to its name (until the order is
changed using "orderBefore").

You are right. Unfortunately "orderable child nodes" is the default.

Another solution is to keep a linked list from child node entry to
child node entry (only in this case). Let's see how complicated that

By the way "same name siblings" would work fine (no linked list required).
