[OSM-dev] OSM IDs order in osm.pbf files

I'm developing an application like osm2pgsql but with a very different
schema, I would like to know if I can assume the following things when
parsing an osm.pbf file :
1. Records will always be in this order, that is:
- dense nodes,
2. OSM IDs are always in increasing order when parsing osm.pbf records
3. A relation with ID x referencing another relation with ID y is such
that x > y.
Are these points safe to assume ?
Thanks a lot, best regards.
