Colour Coded Playing Cards

While playing at the friendly, hospitable Buffalo, NY Regional this afternoon, a local expert was telling me he can't even count all the times he has mis sorted  his cards mixing in Hearts with Diamonds and/or Clubs with Spades.  Hey, we are all getting older...

Currently, both Spades & Clubs are black; Hearts & Diamonds are red. Would it not be a simple matter to have a different colour for each suit?

Even my young partner concurs.  He suggests that Spades should be in Blue; Hearts in Red; Diamonds in Yellow or Orange; Clubs in Green.  The effect would be to make it much more unlikely for people to mis sort their hands.

What do you think?
