[Standards] XEP-0060: order of items

I've proposed a PR for XEP-0060 to explicitely indicate that items are returned in 
chronological order: https://github.com/xsf/xeps/pull/1124[1] .

This was not said in text and the only indicators were examples. Chronological order 
seems logical to me for a generic mechanism (because it's generic, there is no reason that 
we would want latest items first), and it is coherent with examples (with examples https://
xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0060.html#example-79[2] and https://xmpp.org/extensions/
xep-0060.html#example-80[3] we clearly see that items are in chronological order).

Making this explicit will avoid confusion, and ordering issues between clients.
