I don't see any reason why the format can't use the C locale and use ISO dates. These fields aren't for human consumption anyways. They are for developers, and a developer wants an easier to support format. Is there an ISO standard for decimal numbers? If there is we should use it. That would be easier to justify than using C locale.
