Has anyone figured out how to change the order of the project stage "parents"

On the project stage, which is lookup INV_TYPE, the parent (top layer) is INV_TYPE which is system restricted and forces an alphabetical order. The values under it are not restricted and you choose a manual order.

 

Is there a way at all to have the top layer changed from alphabetical to manual? Does anyone know why it forces the alphabetical?

 

We have different stages per business unit and when we add new groups with their stages, it messes up the order of the other groups (and they get in a habit of going to a certain place).

 

Example:

 

DEVELOPMENT STAGES

  A, b, c, d are values  - we can control this

 

IT Stages

d, k, e, f, .. we can control the order of the values

 

but, if we want IT STAGES to show in the list first (without adjusting the name to look stupid), we can't put it ahead of Development. The stage lookup would show Development first and then IT.

 

I hope that makes sense. and just wondering if anyone has had to try to tackle this before.  I searched support and the forums and I did not find anything.

Thanks
