comment Independence of valuations
Here's how I show $\mathfrak{p}=x_iA$.After Arturo Magidin's remark, clearly what we need to show is $x_iR_i\cap A\subset x_iA$. Take $y\in x_iR_i\cap A$. Then $y=x_i r_i$ for some $r_i\in R_i$. On the other hand, since $x_i$ is not in $\mathfrak{p}_j$,$j\neq i$, it has an inverse $x_{ij}'$ in each $R_j$. So $r_i=x_{ij}'y\in R_j$, so $r_i\in A$. Done.

comment Does exceptionalism persist as sample size gets large?
@Shai, Yes I agree your result is correct. They take $X_{n,n}$ as minimum, so the order is decreasing. I also take back my comment that the difference goes to 0; in fact for exponential with parameter 1, it goes to 1. However, there must be a relation between the pdf and that limit.

comment Does exceptionalism persist as sample size gets large?
What I found is that $$ {\rm E}[X_{r + 1:n} - X_{r:n} ] = {n \choose r}\int_{ - \infty }^\infty {[1-F(x)]^r [F(x)]^{n - r}\, dx} ,\;\; r = 1, \ldots ,n - 1. $$ If the pdf is symmetric, such as normal, it wouldn't matter, but if the pdf is not symmetric, it matters. I think the difference between the largest and the second largest goes to 0 when n increases for any continuous real distribution. Intuitively, it makes sense.
