The ISO standard of YYYY/MM/DD is not the most efficent way of using a date

it is better not because it's more efficient, but because it's the standard and so it's prone to be understood by anybody.

If you don't like it, subscribe to the ISO standard commissions (I'm sure they are free) and argue for a change...

example " you want to know the date you look at the ISO standard date you have to wade thru the year the month to find the day date normally the most used part of the date string whereas DD/MM/YYYY the important bit is right at th front of the string DD then you can read the rest if you need it ..

when I give my age, I say I'm from 1946, the month and days don't mean anything...
