Hmm, you know, after I wrote that I happened to be in context mode and took a closer look at the sorting menu. And it turns out that you actually can't
set it to no sort order! There is no option for "none". So maybe this is not solution after all. I'm a little disappointed.
Perhaps OmniFocus uses the action order in planning mode as a secondary sort in context mode? In other words, maybe context mode first sorts by the value in the sort menu of the view bar and then by the order the actions appear in planning mode. I know that's even further from what you originally asked for, and I'm not even sure it works (on my iPhone now so can't verify), but maybe it's something.
You might consider sending in a feature request to Omni too by using the Help -> Send Feedback menu option. That way they can at least look it over and consider the idea for a future release.
Sorry for the confusion.
