Bake the task sorting as a starting point for custom sort orders?

I have A LOT of tasks stored in Asana, so I find myself resorting them constantly as they days change, etc. One thing that I keep getting bogged down in is not being able to use a sort mode and then keep that sorting as the starting point for my custom ordering. Instead, when I switch back to custom or “none” it loses the sorting and goes back to my last custom sort. Is there a way we can get an option to “bake” the sorting into the custom sort order for me to modify later?

Obviously I can add another property and attempt to keep that updated, but it’s far easier to stack rank using the drag and drop UI than it is to change a property and have to update all below it.
