If they want to use a date formatter and not have dates displayed as “YYYY-MM-DD”.

Before these changes dates would be formatted as US style dates by default and if you added
a different date format bead it would still incorrectly display in US date format. Middle
endian / US style dates should not be the default as they are only used by about 5-10% of
the world’s population. If you prefer I can change the default to "DD/MM/YYYY” rather
than YYYY-MM-DD format  (ISO 8601).

Basically code like this would still display US style dates.
        <accessories:DateFormatDDMMYYYYBead />

Reason being that it was just finding the first IFormatBead which was defined in the CSS,
any other IFormatBead bead the user added would be ignored.
