Quoth Vivre Draco,
|    IMHO, a human-readable format is highly preferable -- it minimizes 
| the client requirements, which seems to be one of Jabber's 
| philosophies. The ISO 8601 or SMTP standards look like the best 
| options so far.

If any client needs to process dates in other ways, for example to
compare them for presentation in date order, a display format kind of
backfires as a convenience to the client.
