I think so too. I never submit a patch to p5p without a "make test_porting" first (1-2 minutes for all the tests, excluding build time) which covers the manifest sorting. That patch sounds like its CYA for commiters who think "this can't possibly fail tests so why waste my time running any tests or" I'd rather not see the makefile dependency tree made into more of a ball of yarn that limits build speed on high core count machine (unable to max out all cores).
