    The issue has been raised as to whether to change the number of
    digits in the year for short date formats from 2 to 4 for the en_US
    locale. In other words, should short dates, which are currently
    formatted like 12/06/05, be changed to 12/06/2005?

    The CLDR technical committee is considering this request, and would
    like to gather feedback. This is not a formal Unicode Public Review
    Issue, but an informal opportunity for people to give their opinion.
    I trust that that will not be a problem for this list. :-)
