Worthless subjective conjecture - since I see Euro-dates always as DD-MM-YYYY on, for example, broadcast media (EuroNews, and others) - what you say is non-sense, or as I prefer to put it, yet another example of Eurogance.

More Eurogance. If one does ISO 8601 it follows such standards and not others. Otherwise, it doesn't follow the standards.

As for yyyy/mm/dd:   I've never seen it in the US.   It MUST be a European thing. (did you know we don't all wear stetsons and string ties?)

Look at the phraseology of your post - how you attempt to make the European usage better with vague claims.   Always with the implication that you must be doing it better than the US.   A clear sign of the psychological impotence of your position and the progenitor of Eurogance.
