Section 9.2 says:
Servers MUST process PROPPATCH instructions in document order (an exception to the normal rule that ordering is irrelevant).
It should say:
Servers MUST process the child elements of the propertyupdate XML element in the order they appear in the request body (an exception to the normal rule that ordering is irrelevant).
There are no "PROPPATCH" instructions in the request document (PROPPATCH is a method name, not an XML element name used in WebDAV).
Note this issue was raised during Gen-art review, but not fixed before publication (http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/gen-art/current/msg01823.html)
