Great!
In fact, the format for ja and zh_* are the same. zh_* locales has
many ways to express the "day" either 日 or 號 are all
widely accepted. If you would like some consistency, you might want to
change zh_*'s 號 to 日.
Furthermore, I don't think zh_cn's simplified. Let me know if you want
the simplified characters.
