This sounds like another version of the gold standard that I wrote about above. Yes, in principle resizing is best done near the end because one retains all the detailed pixel-level color and exposure data and one can in theory do a bit better in processing. In practice it doesn't matter much, especially for web-sized images. I resize near the end, but I know I really don't have to, it is just a good habit. If I have already resized and I see one more adjustment I want to make, I go ahead and do it and don't worry about it.
