    It seems prudent to use 08/12/2005 for the default en_US locale. It
    isn't ambiguous as to the year, and can't irritate anyone.

    Put it another way: I'll wager that, when presented with 08/12/05,
    more people would feel motivated go to their settings and change it
    to 2005, than would be the case for people presented with 08/12/2005
    who would go to remove the century.
