--- Comment #2 from Heiko Tietze <tietze.heiko at gmail.com> ---
WORKSFORME as this is the standard behavior of (dropdown) lists. Resorting as
we do for the font name is very uncommon and likely ends up in a mess. The same
is true when you have something in mind as remembering the last used selection. 

However, our guideline [1] states to sort in a natural way and to have the most
common option on top. 

* Place options that represent general options (e.g. all, none) at the
beginning of the list.
* Sort list items in a logical order. Make sure sorting fits translation.
* Do not have blank list items; use meta-options, e.g. (None) instead

Which is the fact for the date field with YY/MM/DD for locale en_US and
DD.MM.YY for de_DE. 

On the other hand I understand that it is tedious to not be able to use the
shortcut Insert>Field>Date but always have to go through the dialog.
