At the moment en-us.yml contains this:

formats:
  default: ! '%m-%d-%Y'

But http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_and_time_notation_in_the_United_States says this:

"The most commonly used separator in the all-numeric form is the slash (/), although the hyphen (-) is also common."

And I think that the most popular date formatting should be used in rails-i18n, so we should use / instead of -.

The same goes for en-gb.yml, en-ca.yml, en-nz.yml, and en-au.yml. There are -, but / is the most popular separator.

Not to mention timezone in the default date/time format (e.g. default: ! '%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S %z'). Not sure what the logic behind default format is, but it's definitely not human-readable.

Thoughts?
