My understanding was that objects would not be required to implement sortKey (and wouldn't be adversely affected for not implementing it) unless they cared about the specific issue that it addresses. I'll verify this w/Jeremy tomorrow, but last I heard ordering should only actually be an issue for Connection objects - other objects that play with the transaction mgr will generally not be subject to the deadlock issue that the sorting is designed to prevent (the deadlock is due to connection interaction w/a storage server).
