But for the same reason, YYYY-MM-DD doesn't seem right in everyday use either. I mean, if you don't care about the year – and for most everyday applications, why would you? – you would just write MM-DD. It only makes sense to append additional superfluous information to the right.
This has been my reasoning. Unless you are a regular time traveler and need to make sure you get the year right, you know what year it is, and just need to keep the month and day sorted.
