Yeah, it allow client to send only the modified part of its
information...and hub broadcast. (Actually, we need to send the whole MyINFO
each time we connect/disconnect to a hub for example)

For the order part, it was just an example of what we can't do. We need to
remember the order of all arguments, and imho, it's not very important (and
little annoying)
Exactly the same thing for the order of commands sent from client to hub (or
client to client). Order is not important, important thing is at least,
destination have all information needed.

I agree that it is in a way an interesting thought. However, I would
guess that hub owners wouldn't like the bandwidth that's wasted on
sending redundant information like that.

If it allows the hub to do partial MyINFO-type broadcasts, the trade-off of a little more incoming bandwidth is well worth not having to broadcast a typical MyINFO sized packet out to all the users.
