linear_ordered_semiring does two things at once, relative to ordered_semiring: it says the ordering is linear (rather than partial), and it asserts 0 < 1.

What if I want just 0 < 1, without the linear ordering. (e.g. most of the orders on rings that I know about... :-)

What are even some examples of interesting ordered_semirings where we don't have 0 < 1??

The order hierarchy is a huge mess, because there are way too many classes including the relation instead of just properties. We simply need someone with a huge amount of time and energy to refactor everything there.

Okay. I'll take that as approval to try out any changes that I feel like. :-)

But the general trend should be towards splitting out "property only" classes as mixins rather than part of a hierarchy.
