Where is the problem? The normal loading order in LaTeX is:
1. class
2. packages

There are some packages that can be loaded before the class,
but there is no garantee that this can be done for any package.
  Package hyperref, however, is definitively a class that
must not be loaded earlier. It has to look for the class
(\@ifclassloaded, \@classoptionlist, ...) and has to
(re)define internals that depends on the class.
