As one of the authors of the DTD it wasn't my intention to enforce a certain 
order. If it is possible to change the current DTD to express that the order 
does not matter, then I suggest to change the DTD in such way.

If it is an intrinsic feature of a DTD that it enforces the order, then 
the .kcfg files should indeed be changed to make sure that they match the 
order in the DTD.

Perhaps the kconfig_compiler should [optionally] verify its input files 
against the DTD as well to catch errors early.
