Files generated by CMake's configure_file(...), for example, are useful to 
have in quickopen. However, identifying them via quick-open mostly yields 
unique results, hence sorting is not a problem here. 
Example: Search for 'kdevplatformversion.h" in KDevelop.

For the others, it probably makes sense to make them pop-up at the end -- but 
I'm not sure if there are performance impacts when sorting them.
