Yes, the soft order constraint does not impact classification. Better regularize with the hard order constraint, or use the soft order constraint with the "regression for classification" algorithm.

Because for any , very small weights are still as powerful as large weights (all that matters is the accuracy of the calculations that computer being able to perform): That also means a hyperplane can be represented by many hypotheses, constraining the weights can reduce the number of hypotheses represents the same hyperplane. Hence softorder constraint will be able to reduce the component while likely not compromising the component.

Edit: I have just remembered that the growth function has already taken care of the issue many hypotheses representing the same hyperplane (and this issue does not affect the component anyway (?)). So in this case the answer should be the hardorder constraint...? I'm really confused right now.
