Order of elements within place

Martin de la Iglesia-3
Dear list,

I just noticed a difference between <place> on the one hand and <person> and <org> on the other that I find rather peculiar: the order of the children of <place> seems more rigid than in <person> and <org>, to the effect that e.g. <person><idno/><persName/></person> and <org><idno/><orgName/></org> are allowed, but <place><idno/><placeName/></place> isn't (while <place><placeName/><idno/></place> is perfectly fine). Is there are reason for that?

Martin

I don't know if there is a *reason* for these discrepancies, but
suggesting a fix is on my plate, something I am hoping to work on
soon enough for Council to discuss in its January meeting. See
https://github.com/TEIC/TEI/issues/367.
