I don't think we want to limit to preceding siblings.  If a user
wants to structure their pipeline "logically" from their perspective,
such a limitation would get in the way.  I can't see how it is
any issue for an implementer.

Similarly, if a user can't easily determine "before" or just wants
to quickly insert a step into their pipeline, they shouldn't have
to figure out what "preceding sibling" means just to do that.
