I think changing the order of the handlers has far too high a risk of 
introducing further nonobvious regressions to consider it for the 
branches.  You need a clear and careful analysis of the circumstances 
under which the order of the handlers can affect observable compiler 
behavior in order to justify such a change as safe.  But I think a better 
principle is that if the order matters, there is a bug in those handlers 
and they should be fixed so that the order doesn't matter (absent a clear 
design showing why it is desirable for the order to matter).
