Think of it as a graph.

A set of patch based on a known base is presumed to be
order-dependant, because they _could_ and typically are.
so when gerrit receive a set of new patches on top of a given base he
rightly assume that their order _is_ important.

I know this is a problem for those whose workflow involve piling a
bunch of unrelated patches and then pushing once a day or so.
There are some scripting that has and can be done to accommodate this workflow.
