RFC regarding usage of ISO 8601 throughout the tree

With the recent changes to the committer graphs, I again was reminded
how much I hate the YYYY/MM/DD format (I can't help it ...). Given that
this almost looks like ISO 8601, but is an unreadable variant of it, I
would like to aggressively change this throughout the tree.

I'd like to start with minor stuff like share/misc/*.dot. Then probably
src/UPDATING, and ports/UPDATING after I've identified the consumers of
these docs.

The ultimate goal would be to change syslog's timestamp and ps(1)
output, but that goal is far off ...
