Regardless of how far it is from actually being introduced...

...has the British DD line actually been settled? Because I have Archibald's "The Fighting Ship in the Royal Navy" in front of me, and I am trying to make educated guesses as to what goes where, to compare my fancy against reality. Knowing the reality is set in stone, even if the names and stats are locked behind an NDA, would almost make me feel better about my guesses.

Yeah, other than the Gallant, Anthony, and Cossack (and arguably the Gadjah Madah, Vampire, and Phra Ruang) we've not seen anything about RN destroyers so far.  You can draw some assumptions from them, but that's about it and I certainly wouldn't go too far with that info.

I'm interested in your thoughts, OP!

I had forgotten about the Anthony. What tier was she nominally assigned to?

T5, she was Gallant basically.

 

As to the OP, all we can do is speculate.

Okay, the Wiki puts the Campbeltown at 3 (premium), the Gallant at VI (premium), and the Cossack at VII (describing her as non premium).

We know the Gadjah, JKN class, is Tier VII, and the Daring (with its automatic guns and as-designed torpedo fit) will almost certainly make Tier X. 

My guess is for the Battle-class (4x 4.5" DP, 12-14x 40mm AA, 2 x4 TT) to go in at IX.

L and M class (6 x 4.5" DP, 2 x 4TT) at VIII

Stock JKN at VII (note that Archibald describes them as having 2 x 5 TT, more than Gadjah).

Tribal, as eventually crystallized, at VI.

Anthony (A/B/C/D class, earlier build sequence than Gallant, but generally identical) at Tier V.

Stock V/W might have to be Tier IV, since they are more heavily armed torp-wise than the Premium Vampire, but if they go in at Tier III to match her then something like Amazon/Ambuscade ( 4x4.7" in ABXY, 2 x 3 TT) at Tier IV.

S class destroyer ( 3x4", 2 x 2TT) at Tier II.

Seems from these (and the Campbeltown and Anthony) that they have a really good start on the line.  Moreso than other speculative lines, i.e. Russian BB's, Italian CL, French DD, etc.
