While People View is not what you want, you can add for each fact type a column for each of the properties enabled: description or value, date, place , place details. And you can sort on any one column. However, you get only one row per person so only one instance of a fact property per person, the first instance in the table for someone with multiples of that fact, independent of the SortDate.
Thanks for the information. I still think RM should be thinking about a One Click sort from either the People page or the Edit Person page. Users would not have to "Add a fact to sort", if the Fact column itself was sort-able.
