Er, because it's the weekend and I was not near a web connected computer.
(Weekend: that time when one has an opportunity to walk on the beach,
tidy the garden, watch a movie, listen to misic, play with the cat...)

I will review the discussion and respond with something helpful ASAP.

My initial quick thought is that we add a capability to recognise

[[some group/yyyymmdd]] 

as a date reference and automatically translate it into 

[[some group/yyyymmdd | Dayname dd Monthname yyyy]]

The format would of course be configurable. No worries.
