Sure, it's more of an note than a requirement: "any header that comes
first must implicitly satisfy all its dependencies (in the context of
that compilation unit)". It wasn't intended as a policy requirement.
Indeed, as it's possible to include headers with different
combinations of include paths and defines depending on where you make
the include, it is no guarantee that the header is unbreakable in all

I agree we should not make requirements that do not match the majority
practice in KiCad.
