If we eventually want to specify that the iteration order is predictable 
then it's probably best to do it all together.

The additional class description looks okay. One comment on the 
constructor that takes the Attributes parameter is that the newly 
created Attributes might have a different order to the Attributes that 
it was created with. This would only arise if Attributes is sub-classes 
by something that uses a different iteration order to its super.
