I think this is not a bug. plistlib api accepts dict (not OrderedDict) and sorted output is a valid output. plistlib sorts dictionaries to be consistent with Apple's tools.

property list format [1] uses CFDictionary [2] with CFString keys. CFDictionary is unordered and the plist example in the format [1] is unordered too. But plutil [3] command sorts dictionaries. It is easy to observe by self-converting plist files with "plutil -convert xml1 test.plist" command.
