You assume that it would be a common case to join non-seq collections. I
argue that this is not the case. In those situations where you do have a
non-seq collection, it would help readability to make the order explicit.
Your concern about performance issues remains to be evaluated; it cannot be
part of this decision here.

Code readability first.
Performance improvements later, after benchmarked.

Just my two cents. ;-)
