Using a common and standard convention for representing dates helps
significantly when manipulating date fields.

The standard format is


With this
representation it's easier and manageable to sort date fields because it's a
sortable value unlike a date represented in say MM/DD/YYYY format.

displaying dates the XPath2.0 format-date function can be used to display the
date in a particular locale. 

There might be other benefits like add and
subtract dates, but I haven't refered these functions.
