Control the order of software dependencies in app model

if i have multiple dependencies for an application(all different apps), there is no way to control the order in which they should be installed unless you create dependency group name with priority. In this example,i have no way to control the order of installation since they are all different category apps and cannot use dependency group.

    Dependency groups are satisfied when any single item is detected so they can't be used to verify that multiple depend apps are installed. You can't order the groups so you have to use dependencies to enforce a particular order. You can't have a dependency chain longer than 5 apps long so if order matters the application model can't handle more than 5 apps. That means Task Sequences. Implementing group ordering would eliminate this bottleneck and the need for task sequences.
