Photoshop CS5.1 / Lightroom 3 - individual keywords sequence possible (non-alphabetical)?

Does Photoshop CS5.1 and Lightroom 3 do have a abilty to save Keywords in a non-alphabetical order, but in and own order? E.g. the most important keyword "zoo" in first place.

No.

Why do you need it? Is this of interest http://www.lightroom-plugins.com/Alam... - I don't know if it does the job but Alamy is usually behind this question.

Because Foto Agencies like Fotolia have a semantic keywords-order. The first seven keywords of a picture are the most important for a search there.

For example if your picture shows a elephant, this word and others like "trunk" must be first and second in keyword-order. Of course I can sort them in the Webinterface on Fotolia.com.
But Photoshop CS3 had this feature to save keywords in non-alphabetic order, thats the annoying point.

I and many photo agencies I use have groups or banks of keywords on different subjects. Its easy to paste these into LR initially to build up a set of keywords for a particular photo or group of photos. However after entering the keywords in this order and you run up LR again it has re-ordered the groups of keywords into alphabetical order, so difficult to do a batch change to a particular group of keywords in the future. Simply need an option to stop LR re-organising them wrt your initial input order.
