I am not insisting on anything, really. I just thought I got a bit
more wishes for derivatives of this format - I really don't know. I
thought I'd solve the problem by committing something and then just
waiting until I get a clear request from someone to change it to
something else. So I'd like a clear comment from you or someone else
that how should I proceed.

But on the format itself, actually the ISO-8601 standard implies that
the TZ should have a colon if the time format has colons - and not
have a colon if the time format doesn't have them. The usage of space
instead of 'T' as the middle delimiter is something one can get away
with - but the addition of space between the time and the timezone
does violate the standard I believe. I do not have the standard
accessible, so I really can't say anything definite. And this is
ofcourse very much irrelevant for dates that are just displayed to the
user.
