The archive_month, archive_week, and archive_day date-based generic views all respect a model's default ordering — that is, none of those generic views append order_by() when they filter a QuerySet. The archive_year view, however, will always return a chronological list of objects; this cannot be overridden.
The offending code is line 79 (in the current Subversion trunk).
I might be wrong, but I think archive_year should adhere to a model's default ordering, as the related date-based views do. But since this would change the expected behaviour of a lot of existing sites, I guess an optional parameter allowing a programmer to specify the ordering would be nice. I'll attach a patch.
