[XML-SIG] problem in ElementTree SubElement

   you simply can't rely on the order of attributes unless your XML
data are in canonical form which keeps attributes alphabetically
ordered. I guess this a very simple way of saying that the SAX parser
likely to be running behind ElementTree API layer does not preserve
the order of attributes. In general SAX(2) does not have to. Please
correct me if I am wrong about this.
