Yes.  It has to be in this order because the simplifications can
detect patterns that correspond to M or W, and reintroduce these

I'm afraid we don't have that.  Simplification and unabbrevation are
two separate functions, and rewriting those to be a single function
would be a lot of work.
I've an idea that could improve this specific case, but that isn't
like the "simplify with restricted operators" solution you could dream
