I believe all dates in LC are delivered using US English spellings, 
except when explicitly directed otherwise by setting the useSystemDate 
to true.

With the Internet date, though, the Dictionary notes that it follows RFC 
2822, which IIFC only supports US English date element names, so I think 
it should be unaffected by the useSystemDate.

If anyone using a non-US English system can double-check the format 
after setting the useSystemDate to true it would be helpful to confirm that.
