Mathieu Lirzin commented on OFBIZ-11296:

You are right that your anwser is containing points specific to this issue 
however they are based on general principles (stability for production, 
backward compatibility, relation to community approval). Those principles are 
too far from my perspective/requirements as a developer trying to make OFBiz 
better, that I cannot see a way to resolve this specific issue without 
discussing the principles first.

> Use 'depends-on' everywhere

> OFBIZ-11296_ignore-depends-on-when-a-component-load.xml-is-prese.patch
> We currently have two ways to define component loading order. Either
> by using ‘depends-on’ attribute in “component-config.xml” or by adding
> a “component-load.xml” file at the root of a component directory.
> “depends-on” is more flexible because it handles partial ordering when
> “component-load.xml” defines a total order which is not necessarily
> meaningful, so it is better to rely only “depends-on”.
