What about 2002 Dec 17 Tue 13:30? Asian countries (at least china and japan) tend to do it this way. And as it has been point out before, it is consistent with our general number system, which locates "small"digits on the right, and "big"on the left (sorry, i know this is poorly phrased, but i can't find an other way to say it) actualy, your system has a very little incoherence: it goes from specific to general (time to day to month to year), except for one thing: you give the hour before the minutes. That is completely usual, but no realy consistent with the general format you suggest ;)
