Many Integrated Development Environments do this.  Stickies on Mac does this.  Email clients retain sort preferences.  Why not save sort preferences in a web application? Why doesn’t my Instant Messaging client bring up the conversation windows I didn’t explicitly close?  My DVD player asks me if I want to continue from the last time I was watching that specific video.
