On the whole website you like to have one specific dateformat. It should be nice, likewise in Wordpress, to have the possibility to choose this format into Global Configuration. 3rd part extensions can lean on this choice as default and maybe present a alternative way, special for the extension.

I completely agree! This would be a great touch in the Joomla core. Having 3rd party developers use it would be a awesome bonus.

Also: the date format depends on the specific language strings.
