It would be much more useful if the field reference were done by type of field. This is done to some extent already, but it would help if simpler concepts were first, and more difficult ones were last, and if similar fields, such as those that store numbers and those that store text were sorted together.

If it were in the "topics" or "intro" section of the docs I might agree, but it's "reference", and in my opinion reference materials should be sorted alphabetically for ease of ongoing lookup even at the cost of some confusion for new folks. To give an extreme example: where would the dictionary be if it were sorted by difficulty of the words?

I agree with Gabriel. I don't see what we gain by having anything other than an alphabetical guide in the reference docs.
