Please don't change it to all numbers; at best, US dates can be 
ambiguous, and can be downright misleading if used for anything 
important (like restoring from backups, and getting wrong backup because 
arrogant company assumes everyone is American). Basically, use any 
format you like, as long as it can only be interpreted one way. 
Ambiguity leads to pain which leads to loss of income; just don't do it.
