For addresses, the order of the included elements is probably not
important. When it comes to, say, printing an envelope, we all know that
the street address comes before the locality. Parsers can have this
For other microformats and some proposed microformats, order may be
important. For example, the ordered steps in the "method" part of a recipe.
