Why can't I change the appearance ('displays a coloured lozenge (a rounded box)') of the Status macro?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Status Macro

When I'm using a Status Macro as an element within a Page Properties macro, and later on create a page using the Page Properties Report, the column containing the Status macro data can be sorted according the (title) of the status macro.

I would like to re-use this functionality, but use another appearance of the status macro. Can I do this? And how?

Is your question about sorting against the status macro another way? The title looks like you just want to change the way the status lozenge looks.

Currently, i use a number of images to visualize different kinds of 'statusses'.

But it appears that those images cannot be sorted in the Page Properties Report (see issue CONF-40995), so i'm looking for another solution.

I know that (the information provided by) the Status Macro is sorted correctly, so this functionality i would like to re-use, but i indeed want to give the Status Macro another appearance in some cases...
