Just out of interest, why not stick to using the internationally
accepted YYYY-MM-DD format everywhere?
Of course page layout should preferably not break whatever format is
used, I just don't understand why people continue to use different
(often ambiguous) formats when a perfectly good standard exists. Am I
missing something obvious?

Naturally. Not using <table> for a table is just as wrong as the opposite.
