That's a pretty old piece of code, probably before my time. The history is unfortunately broken
by a move back in 2013 [1] but it would be interesting to go back to the origins of that file
and see if any commit message sheds light on why that ordering was chosen. It does seem an
odd choice, but perhaps there was a reason.

Before you fork Cayenne let's see if we can improve this behaviour for the entire community.
