Status - Change order

Would it be possible to change the order of Action and Next Action in the drop list?

I understand Active to be something occurring now or currently be pursued...
I understand Next Actions to be something occurring in the near future or next in the series...

However, if you sort by the status column, next action appears higher in the list than Active. That doesn't seem correct but you can clearly see that the order of statuses in the drop-down was chosen and not random or alphabetical. Why?

I wish Active would be above next Action when sorting by status.... it just seems that should be the natural order...

The status field was added to help people who follow the GTD methodology. In GTD, the "Next Action" list is the most important list. When you finish your current task, your next task will come from the "Next Action" list. This is why we put it at the top. "Active", in this methodology is all the other tasks that can be done and are not blocked by something else.
