Yes.  This change is backward incompatible and buggy; the rationale
for SCCS being in the "early" group still holds as far as I know,
unless SCCS has improved its support for whole-tree commits recently.

Just deprecate it entirely, by removing it from the list.  Maybe
document that 'SCCS is an allowed element, and it should come early if
it's used.
