I saw that as something only missing from text, and spelling it out clearly 
would allow to open bug reports on pubsub implementations following a different 
order (from my interpretation, the order was clear from examples, but I know 
that examples are not specifications).

I can update XEP-0413 to make implementation of "creation" optional (with 
suitable disco#info) thus XEP-0060 would be officially unordered. I just hope 
that implemenation will follow and we won't keep the status quo for years.

King Regards
