[LV2] State: load order port values vs dictionary

Lv2's state homepage says: "The goal is for an instance's state to be 
completely described by port values (as with all LV2 plugins) and a 
simple dictionary". I think this means that

* the port values are to be saved/loaded by the host in the usual Lv1 
* the dictionary is saved/loaded using the `LV2_State_Interface`

Now, if a host needs to load an Lv2 plugin and has both port values and 
dictionary available in its savefile, in what order must that host load 
these two? Are there even cases where the order could matter?

Thanks + regards,
