Designer should show diffs when it comes to XML when they actually matter.
Examples, sometimes XML in GCV objects in Designer get the attribute xml:space="preserve" and sometimes they don't. It seems to have with packages to do.
Designer should either decided to always add that attribute or never! Now you don't know if anything in the GCV has actually changed because the diff always shows that something has changed but it's actually just that attribute.
Next, sometimes Designer shows diffs when comparing the filter or the schema mapping policy.
The order maybe different (why? don't know!), it's just something that happens from time to time.
So the order of the attributes in a schema mapping or in a filter shouldn't matter.
If the same attribute under the same in class is both in Designer and the IDV and has the exact same XML attributes it should be considered to be the same. Right now it's only confusing. It should at least be possible to check a box for "ignore ordering" when comparing.
