[wp-hackers] Date and time logic

I've noticed that on some areas of the dashboard, the dates shown are 
formatted according to the translation file (<locale>.mo, if it exists). 
This is true (at least) on the Pages' and Posts' lists.

My question is if it wouldn't make more sense to read the format from 
Settings > General > Date Format since right now it can get a bit 
confusing for a user having defined a format of, say "Y-m-d" but seing a 
format of "Y\d\m" because the .mo says so. This is particularly 
pertinent to MU where different users can choose different date and time 
formats,  but  applies to wp.org, mu.org and wp.com.
