[Bug 211598]
date(1) default format in en_EN locale breaks compatibility with 10.3
and violates POSIX


It breaks compatibility but not violates POSIX. POSIX care of only its
own POSIX (or C) locale.

POSIX does say that the default format should be the same
as with "+%a %b %e %H:%M:%S %Z %Y".
It also says that %a and %b are locale's abbreviated names.

It may not say what an abbreviated name really looks like
in a particular locale, but it does distinguish between
full and abbreviated names.
