This U.S. MM/DD/YYYY format causes much discussion in one of the
UseNet group to which I contribute so I have my suspicion about this
U.S. MM/DD/YYYY format!!

Invalid date format.
No dates are invalid ....
Unless they specify a 20th month.
Unless it is the standard US MM/DD/YYYY format.
I think it may have started as" Month Date, Year" format, i.e. May 26,
1773, which then got abbreviated, due to laziness or whatever, to the
MM/DD/YYYY format, i.e. 05/26/1773 (to use the date I gave above).
Of course, this is just my theory, or attempt to put some logic behind
why the U.S.'ians does what they do!! ;-P Then again, it might just
be the U.S.'ians being cantankerous!! ;-P
Except for the aspersions implicit in "laziness", you theory is spot-on.
The numeric format is a straight translation of the words'n'numbers
format to numbers-only.
"aspersions" ... Who?? Me?? ;-P
