--- Comment #1 from Darren Tucker <dtucker at zip.com.au> ---
This is by design: you can put overrides at the top and defaults at the
bottom.  From the second paragraph of ssh_config(5):

"Since the first obtained value for each parameter is used, more
host-specific declarations should be given near the beginning of the
file, and
general defaults at the end."

Sorry, but's worked this way for over a decade and I don't see it
changing now, especially given it'll possibly break existing working
