There must be a reason to handle the partitions
in this order. I'm very curious to know which is it, before proposing any

you're more likely to extend storage for fileystem (e.g. "/") compared
to swap, the swap space is placed first, and "/" last. This makes
extending the storage somewhat easy enough for experts: you need to
create a new partition table, but you don't need to move any data

That makes much sense. Thank you.
