Collection views and additional options needed

I find Lightroom's Collection and Collection Set organization to be one of it's biggest problems in comparison to Apple's implementation of Events and Albums (and now Memories) in their Photos program. 

Regardless of how people organize their photos using Lightroom's Collections, there is room for improvement here. For one, there should be a grid view of the Collections and ways to Sort that grid view based on additional Collection options. 

For example, A collection should have an option for entering a Date, year/month, and selecting a key image as a Cover Image for that collection. Collections should also have Tags or Keywords that you could assign to them, not just the photos. 

With these options, your collections could be viewed as a Grid, sorted by date, with the newest first, showing all your collections. Then, filtered by Tags (such as those marked Travel) or by a year, such as 2001. 

Currently, there is no way to re-sort through your collections. You have to search through by keyword and then work backwards to find which collections the images are in. 

It makes it so difficult to organize without these basic Collection options.
