I would like to be able to sort my sources based on the date of the document information. For example if I've sourced a City Directory for the years 1920, 1922, 1925 and then 1935 and add other sources after these entries and find a City Directory entry for 1923, I would like to be able to enter the information and sort by date so that the source templates that I used for City Directory would then show 1920, 1922, 1923, 1925 and 1935.

Try putting the date in the source name, either first following identical first words:
Someplace City Directory 1920
Someplace City Directory 1922
Someplace City Directory 1923
Someplace City Directory 1925
1920 Chicago city directory
1920 Detroit city directory

That is, if you want this sort in the main sort list.
The sources for a single person or fact/event aren't sorted alphabetically. (they seem to be sorted by order of entry.)
