That's ok.

I guess yes. A bit annoying but standard behaviour and common to 
lightdm, gdm3, sddm and ldm (LTSP).

The sequence 'Username, Session and Language choice, Password' would be 
okay as well.

The chosen options (session, language) are stored in $HOME/.dmrc, so the 
username must be known. The next time you get what is stored in .dmrc 
if no other choice has been made (or the input sequence was wrong).
