  It sounds logical that VPN is started before the network servers.

  OTOH most servers listen on all interfaces anyway so it shouldn't make 
a difference.

  And anyway, the openvpn --daemon will exit immediately, long before the 
new tun/tap interface actually appears. So it makes no sense to consider 
anything to depend on openvpn.

  On Debian, openvpn depends on network, nfs-client and syslog, and is 
started before X. Cups and samba are started after openvpn, but ftpd, 
apache and exim4 are started before.

  Bottom line: keep it as it is, since it doesn't make a big difference.
