Cumulative sorting makes sense for most cases. However, I think in this particular case, it's not particularly useful. When I sort the transactions by date, I expect them to be sorted by the order in which the balance is calculated, leading to a sensible "Total" column. I don't think I would ever need to sort transactions by the day in which they occurred, with same-day transactions sorted alphabetically. I only have three or four transactions in one day maximum anyway. I imagine most users' accounts are the same, although I can't prove it :)

I like the idea of sorting by transaction ID. Are transaction IDs always in order? If so, that's the behaviour I would like to see.
