Comments re these three related, proposed CSS 3 additions?

1.  Add 'text-transform:time', which would transform text in the format
hours:minutes:seconds (24 hour clock) to the local format for displaying the
time, e.g. <span style="text-transform:time;">23:15</span> might be rendered
as 11:15PM or 23:15.

2.  Add 'text-transform:date', which would transform text in the format
year-month-day to text in the local format for displaying the date, e.g.
<span style="text-transform:date;">2004-07-23</span> might be rendered
07/23/04, 23/07/04, 07/23/2004, 23/07/2004, or whatever.

3.  Add 'text-transform:number', which would transform a number per the
local format for displaying a number, e.g. <span
style="text-transform:number;">123,456,789.01</span> might be rendered as
123,456,789.01, 123 456 789,01, 123.456.789,01, or whatever.

The objective, of course, is to be able to have times, dates, and numbers in
content rendered in formats with which the user is most familiar, e.g. into
the formats which in Windows are specified by Control Panel, Regional
Settings.
