Hello Reto,

We opted to avoid the complexity of ordering resources or values in
Fresnel core. We're open to suggestions on how best to handle the issue
(extensions, revise core, etc.), it's just that at that time we had
enough other issues on our plate to deal with without getting into how
to describe the myriad ways of ordering things. Our sense then was
basically to let the implementing application handle ordering.

(So you didn't miss anything.)
