  In “german Switzerland” (Deutschschweiz) too. I once saw an
envelope with “Herr Doktor Professor Direktor…” (with first name
unabridged to initials, it would have been improper). That was
a long envelope ;o)

  I thought that titles should be ordered by “importance”
(easiest to get/most common first). Isn’t a PhD longer than an
Ingenior diploma?
  (FWIW, Google finds 84700 "Dr. Dipl. Ing." vs. 712000 "Dipl.
Ing. Dr.".)
