Unclear how you can say with certainty that this is impossible, but let's
ignore that point for the moment.

Is there some reason that iptables-save should do the sorting for userspace
scripts?  Another alternative would be to always load the modules in the same
order via a modprobe script instead of allowing random loading based upon rule
addition order.

Either way, I'm perplexed why you believe this use case is a problem which
should be solved via iptables-save.
