For podebconf "inst" sounds to me more sensible, as debconf questions
are typically only shown when the package is installed, later usage is
not important. For programm (po) based translation "vote" might be
actually more sensible[1].

However, I guess translators of languages with less coverage than lets
say French or Geman might speak up how they would prefer the sorting.



[1] But it has been disputed several times on this list that the po
based translations should be shown at all as many of the project are
translated outside Debian and hence this list could be misleading (or
disappointing, as translations might not be accepted)
