By reading the manpage: "If a unit foo.service contains a setting
Before=bar.service and both units are being started, bar.service's
start-up is delayed until foo.service is started up." It says nothing
about having to put After=foo.service in bar.service, so why would you
think it is needed?

If you want easy-to-understand information, please read Lennart's blog
posts, then read the relevant manpages to get the nitty gritty
details. Then ask questions if something is unclear (and hopefully the
answers will lead to patches to the manpages).
