I agree. That's also what I wrote in the JOSM ticket
>And the reason I wrote that I don't see this happening is because it would probably break all other software relying on the API - GPX extensions are not there to override the standard but to extend it. So the points couldn't be in a `<trkseg>` anymore. But I'll open a ticket there and we'll see.

I don't know what software relies on the API. My guess is that all software was essentially broken the moment trackpoints weren't ordered anymore and probably chose to ignore the unordered ones (like JOSM). So it probably would only break the editors again, other than that I don't know what software could actually use the unordered trackpoints.

But that's the point where I'm not involved enough, I stated the possibilities from my point of view - I don't really know about the consequences.
