Question Ordering categories not possible

Ordering categories in a free and arbitrary sequence seems not to be possible.
With mouse-over on the 3 points icon on the left of each row you get "Please sort by order to enable reordering".
"order" is not available, but only "Reorder":
<div class="btn-group pull-right">
	<label for="sortTable" class="element-invisible">Sort Table By:</label>
	<select name="sortTable" id="sortTable" class="input-medium" onchange="Joomla.orderTable()">
		<option value="">Sort Table By:</option>
		<option value="ordering" selected="selected">Reorder</option>
		<option value="p.published">Status</option>
		<option value="p.title">Title</option>
		<option value="p.access">Access</option>
		<option value="p.locked">Locked</option>
		<option value="p.review">Review</option>
		<option value="p.allow_polls">Polls</option>
		<option value="p.anonymous">Anonymous</option>
		<option value="p.id">ID</option>
	</select>
</div>

However this doesn't work. The 3-point-icon stays inactive.

There is an interesting comment in the HTML indicating that this might be an open issue:
<!-- TODO: not implemented
<div class="btn-group pull-right">
	<label for="sortTable" class="element-invisible"></label>
	<select name="levellimit" id="sortTable" class="input-medium" onchange="Joomla.orderTable()">
		<option value=""></option>
	</select>
</div>-->

Does this mean, that ordering categories is not yet implemented. And if so, is there any plan or timeline?
Any workaround possible besides naming the categories like "01-topic5" ... "07-topic2" ?

The sort options such as by Status are only temporary for working in the backend and after the next login shows again the default setting. If you want to change the sort for the frontend you need two steps on the left hand side.

Step 1: click on the symbol (image 1)
Step 2: move the categories (image 2)
