I'm sure there's a technical hurdle why this is so, but I'm sad that it isn't possible. If my hunch is correct, they probably perform a diff on the serialized text of the prefab to see what's overridden, so reordering components around would diff the wrong things. If so, they could've made the display order of components in the inspector independent of the serialization order.
This is in a prefab variant, and my attempts to reorder the components in the prefab variant asset itself doesn't work.
