I think it's convention to dictionaries. But since we don't have any official rule, I'd like to make a deal let the light tone placed before. First we make tool to generate ruby marked HTML for author, then hope IMEs and word process software like Word and Pages to output in right order.

In my experience to deal such thing with MOE Taiwan. It's not easy to give official statement but if there's any reference about Bopomofo. They will review and give feedback.
