No. That's a feature not a bug; the sorts of cases where you want an
ORDER BY in a subquery, it's because you really want those rows computed
in that order (eg you've got side-effect-causing functions reading the
results). Postgres will never discard an ORDER BY as "immaterial".
A rule of thumb is that ORDER BY in a view is bad design, IMHO.
