This is all good but I think that self-inconsistent format strings are
not really the main source of to_date problems.  Most of the complaints
I've seen arise from to_date plowing ahead to deliver a ridiculous
answer when the input data string doesn't match the format.  I'd like to
see the code try a little harder to validate the input data.
