Default Sort information according to colors in Excel

A lot of information in Excel often has to be colored in different colors in
order to differ and comprehend this information easily. It could be both
background and letter colors. Sometimes it could be hundreds of lines and
tens of columns. It would be really helpful if Excel would recognize the
colors, search for them, understand the difference and sort the info
according to them.
