Maybe I'm in the minority here - wouldn't be the first time - but I
think you're the first person I've ever heard mention a strict order
of steps.  Even during the discussion about Draw/Play, I got no
impression from anyone that any rules other than those two had to be
done in any particular order.  Everybody I've played with has by
default done Draw, Play, then "everything else" as they saw fit.  As
long as all the conditions are met by the end of your turn,
everything's cool.

Of course, that reminds me of one of my favorite combos: Play All,
Hand Limit 0, Rules Reset.  Your turn is over, you still have all your
cards, but nobody else has any....  :)
