This is a common problem when using filled areas.  It would make a
great deal of sense to have a [x|y]line(####,[front|back]) syntax so
the user could specify when in the process of drawing the graph
objects the [x|y]line is drawn.  This is why the -pcarrowi- approach
works, one specifies it after the plot with the area fill options and
plots are drawn in the order written.  Frankly, I think Stata should
have the option for the [x|y]line to be drawn on a plot after the
other objects have been drawn and suspect the programming changes
would be minor.

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.
Progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.
