Hmmm.  Looking at some of our results, it seems that the real issue is  
that the sorting is only at the top level.  So that while the class  
definitions and the individuals will be in the sam relative position,  
property values will not necessarily preserve their order.  I suspect  
that may also be true for restrictions on classes, but I didn't check  

For individuals, the properties are not in alphabetical order, and  
neither are the values if a single property has multiple values.

I'm not suggesting that this be done, but if one wanted to have a  
canonical serialization, then there would need to be more levels at  
which sorting would need to happen.
