Abandon Localisation

Even after 72 years, computers still don’t consistently display all dates, times, countries, phone numbers and currencies in the reader’s preferred format. We should give up on that as politically impossible, and instead move toward a more efficient uniform ISO (International Standards Organisation) representation, e.g. YYYY-MM-DD 24:59 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time/Temps Universel Coordonné) that will also work for hard copy shared over the planet.
