Nice to see that as that appears to be the most common date format used in the 
world. Nevertheless, it also does not adhere to the ISO standards for date and 
time. In regards to date, the Canadian notation of year/month/day is what 
comes closest. I do agree that the US notation doesn't make any sense, but 
what can one expect from people who intentionally make themselves suffer from 
inches and fluid ounces or the worst of them all AWG (instead of cross-section).

But isn't there already a way to format a date any way one likes to?
