Oh! I am late to vote!

In IranL10nInfo draft we have defined the first letter of the weekdays for their 
abbreviated names. You can see it in the first table of section [3.2]:

And the description is:
It is very common to use the first letter of weekdays in month calendars. 

However, it is so rare to see this short form in a representation of a date. We had 
also some recent posts about the day and month names you can read here and discuss if 
you wish: http://www.idevcenter.com/projects/iranl10ninfo/forum/?messageid=10
