(too) many other things in Postfix, the order of these transformations
is entirely hard-coded. This may not be the prettiest thing in the
world, but it has the benefit that it is easy to explain. Features
that are difficult to explain will not be used, or worse, they will
be used incorrectly.
If there is a mechanism to eliminate hard-coded behavior from Postfix
than that could be an improvement. However a patch that only swaps
the order for a random subset of address transformations makes
Postfix harder to explain, and that is not an improvement.
