The format of the date in the 'publish date' field in post settings is in US English, i.e. 'MM/DD/YYYY'. This is confusing for anyone in a non-American English location, where 'DD/MM/YYYY' is the conventional date format.
Open 'settings' tab on an existing post
'Publish date' is set to MM/DD/YYYY

The use of the date format 'MM/DD/YYYY' is confusing to those not in American English locations. In the absence of being able to dynamically determine full locale data, using 'YYYY-MM-DD' seems to the least ambiguous date format which would be intuitive to most users.
