This late binding is intended behaviour. It was previously used to
allow default sinks that point to autoload sinks. Autoloading is now
deprecated but I do believe it makes sense to keep this
behaviour. Firstly to not break compat, and secondly because this
allows arbitrary execution orders of commands during
initialization. (Also, I don't really see why this behaviour is that
bad in the first place anyway...)
