I appreciate what you are saying.  

What I did so far, and none of it has been submitted yet, was to code my
task to accept either of the ISO8601 formats in DateUtils
(yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ss or yyyy-MM-dd) if no format is specified by the
user, OR if the user specifies a time format in the parameters to the
<stcheckout> task, parse only against that single format (and not the
defaults).  While that may fit your definition of a slippery slope, I
really don't think so since the only defaults are standards and anything
non-standard must be specified by the user in the same task-invocation
as the data being passed to the task.
And the "nested exception handler from hell" is only two levels deep.
