 There is no way for object term entry order to dictate term display order.

 Add a column in the term_relationships table. Call it term_order. When
 terms are saved into taxonomy registered with 'sort'=>'term_order' we can
 do something like this:
 INSERT INTO term_relationships (object_id, term_taxonomy_id, term_order)
 VALUES (1, 1, 1), (1, 2, 2), (1, 8, 3) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE term_order
 = VALUES(term_order)
