I feel that any prequel is always intended to be watched in release order; ie the very fact that it is a prequel means that it should be watched with the knowledge of the film that comes after it.
Chronological order ruins the viewing experience, at least for a first-time viewer (people who have seen all films can choose any order).
I joke, but this his would not be an issues if everyone had an option to watch the unaltered theatrical cuts. 😃

It might be fun to do fan edits of AotC and RotS that account for Machete Order. It’s grown on me as a way of watching the films.
Put me down for that kind of edit, which could include a framing device of Luke meditating and seeing the story from Vader and Kenobi’s perspectives. Voice AI for all three, along with existing lines, would work wonders here.
It also makes it line up with TLJ, which is a plus for me.
