I think its more natural as user experience for you to look the alphabetical order of the first item of the list, in this case since you have the file name it should be order by it. If you happen to use on type of files more frequently than others than it wouldn't really matter as the file add dialog remembers your last choice and if you need to change your choice it just feels faster to look at an alphabetical ordered list.
Something similar to what Gimp open image menu, maybe even add an additional all vector files that would encompass all supported OGR formats
