Bug#111268: Svenska språknämnden is a preferrable authority for Swedish as a language

I think SIS - Sewdish Institute for Standardisation is also a preferable
source for Swedish Language, and especially when it comes to computers.
SIS has made a recommendation to use either 12:34:56 or 12.34.56
as the time format, and mentions 12:34:56 first. This is a description
made especially for locales, and it would then take precedence over what
Svenska Språknämden prescribes.

I do not find 12:34 very technical, it is very common everywhere.

Best regards

Reference for the SIS-ITS specification:
