That would get in the way of a number of useful cases.  For instance,
what if you try to launch builds for several branches in parallel, and
one of the back branches happens to execute first?

What I think would be useful would be to extend the broken-dependency
nagbot so that it also nags if you have a back-branch that's NVR-newer
than any later branch.

IOW: nag good, preventing people from doing their work bad.
