Remember that's only for the stock icons though. The other icons are in the order the application starts up.

That's only partly true. It's a feature of anything that is compliant with the SystemUIServer API, which is not a public API. Typically, only Apple Apps (Airport, Battery, Date/Time, etc) can be moved, but other things like MenuMeters which use the SystemUIServer can also be moved by holding CMD and dragging.

Apps that extend NSMenubar (or something like that), which is most applications by third-parties, cannot be moved that way.
