And MM/DD/YYYY doesn't sort lexically either.
I, for one, admitted that right off the top.

There's no advantage of mm/dd over dd/mm, or vis-versa, except for the obvious one: it should reflect the way people speak.

In science and business - yyyymmdd is the rational solution because sorting (for example) is needed without ridiculous accommodations (such as in code).

The key here is to realize writing, deep down inside, is a way to represent speech and transfer ideas. Smoothly. For the people with whom one is in contact with pretty much all the time. The smoother and more convenient it/they is/are for this purpose the better.
