There is a small difference: if you've loaded only the code up to the point of the definition which is being tested when you run the test (either by writing tests in the same source code file as the definitions, or by using some clever test infrastructure), then you prove that your definitions aren't using anything defined later.

Of course you can probably tell whether code is in prerequisite order just by looking at it, so this may not add much value.
