You example shows only dates where it is quite obvious what date format

Can you tell if these files were created 5th march or 3rd may? How (I'd
really like to know)?

That's the point... Which is why YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm is the only rational format.

Well, except for the ISO variation YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm, good for when you want
to avoid spaces (e.g., in filenames).  :-)
