Are we required to Sort the Book, or Author list?

The specs say that when we output our Book list, and author list, that we must also output the IDX that it was at. Yet, I could not find anywhere on the specs where it says that the book or author list had to be sorted a specific way. Depending on how a program reads in data, and manipulates it, this could result in lots of different output lists when the TA's are looking for a specific list. Will the Grading of the output be dependent on the ordering of the list? Will the IDX numbers matter other then having them as a counting reference? for example:

Having the list
1: Robert Jordan 00154
2: Piers Anthony 00155

Be graded differently then the list
1: Piers Anthony 00155
2: Robert Jordan 00154

??

Thanks.
