FWIW, OpenLaszlo does not take that risk, because we want to work across many platforms.  When we care about iteration order, we don't use Object.  What we do use depends on the application:  Usually when we care about iteration order, random access is not an issue, so we just use a "plist" (an array of alternating keys and values).
