I had a similar issue and maybe this is or interest to you.
The comparisons I have contain a lot of order changes but I am not interested in them.
I'm calling EMF Compare programmatically, so I can access the computed diffmodel.
Before opening the compare UI for the user, I remove all order changes:
org.eclipse.emf.compare.mpatch.util.MPatchUtil.removeDiffEle mentOfType(snapshot.getDiff(), Collections.singleton(DiffPackage.Literals.REFERENCE_ORDER_C HANGE));
MPatchUtil is available in the CVS repository of EMF Compare, or I can post the method here if you like.
Hope it helps
