The other day, colleague Shawn Steele posted in his blog about the ISO 8601 Week of Year format in Microsoft .Net, which explains how to work around the fact that we do not exactly support the standard in our implementation. And some readers may recall when I linked to Isaac K. Kunen's post about how to work around this in SQL Server using SQLCLR integration which uses a slightly different method to get at the answer.
Now this does not mean I do not still think that ISO 8601 is asinine -- because I do. But I am not blind to the fact that not all of the content in the standard is (like I said!), and that if people are then it is likely not for the same reasons. :-)
If they just did not focus on human readability while being so insensitive to human preferences, I'd probably change my mind here....
