Laodiceans might come before Revelation, but things like the Shepherd of 
Hermas would follow, in those few manuscripts that include it.  Purely in 
terms of re-ordering, there will also be some traditional OT Apocrypha 
that follow Revelation in appendix, in some editions.  But I think their 
"canonical" location should still be intertestamental.
