Right, the end user should always be able to control the exact ordering.
I'm just trying to get the sane-est default (in my mind, maybe not
yours) I possibly can.

We already do - the exact criteria is carrier (up, unknown, down), then
lease (there or not) and finally metri (lower better, 100 + if_index,
+100 if wireless).

User can override metric in dhcpcd.conf or on the command line.
