They used to say that they were unrelated, and that you could get the architect cert without going down the programmer's route. In fact I know someone who did just that, got his Architect cert back in '99 without doing the others.
But, Suned has just reorganized their web site,
The new site makes it look like there is a definite track of programmer -> developer -> architect. But there is nothing explicitly stating any prerequisites.

There are no prerequisites for the SCEA though that little diagram that goes from programmer to developer to architect might imply it.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
