Despite all the discussions about whether or not to use GMT, nobody
has addressed the question why the date format is different than
the one used in HTTP (MM/DD/YY instead of
DD-Mon-YY according to RFC850
or [Wkday,] DD Mon YYYY according to RFC822

Economy of specification, as well as implementation, would suggest
a uniform date format in all WWW protocols and applications.
