Date format

The following is normally rendered depending on preferences:

 [[2001-01-05]] (or [[2001]]-[[01-05]]) (with leading zeros)
 [[2001]] [[January 5]] ([[2001]] [[January 05]])
 [[January 5]], [[2001]] ([[January 05]], [[2001]])
 [[5 January]] [[2001]] ([[05 January]] [[2001]])
 [[January 5]] ([[January 05]])
 [[5 January]] ([[05 January]])

With your current preference setting on this project the seven are rendered as follows:

  1. 2001-01-05 (2001-01-05)
  2. 2001 January 5 (2001 January 05}
  3. January 5, 2001 (January 05, 2001)
  4. 5 January 2001 (05 January 2001)
  5. January 5 (January 05)
  6. 5 January (05 January)

The user-specified date format does not seem to work on the mw: wiki for links! It works in Recent Changes etc.
