The text currently says they SHOULD be contiguous.  The advantage to contiguity is that you can speculatively issue batches and assume with some accuracy that the sequence numbers you pick will match the sequence numbers your peer picks.

Loosening that to simply ordered seems touchy, since one since effectively becomes dominant in picking which sequence numbers will actually become useful. (Only the intersection of the sequence numbers chosen by each peer can be stably used.)
