All views have a "Sequence" field (the technical field name is "priority") which determines the order that they apply to whatever view they inherit from. If your view has a lower Sequence, it will be applied before views that have a higher Sequence. The default sequence is 16 and most views don't change it.

Reports still use views (QWeb type views) underneath, so the same applies. You can just define your template with a lower Sequence if you're concerned about a different module changing something before your module gets the chance.

<template id="report_mymodule" inherit_id="other_module.report_other_view" priority="15"/>

To some degree, it's impossible to be wholly compatible with any 3rd party modules the user may want to install. As a rule of thumb, don't remove content; if you want to replace something, make it invisible so that it still exists in the XML (in case some other module tries to make changes based on that element).

Thank you Travis, this is a very useful answer! I didn't think of making stuff invisible, that will probably solve many issues i am getting.
