People may recall that I have talked about genitive dates in whole heap o' posts:

Anyway, there is an interesting programmatic issue related to making changes in .NET >= 2.0 in DateTimeFormatInfo.MonthNames but not DateTimeFormatInfo.MonthGenitiveNames that Shawn Steele talked about yesterday in What's a genitive month name anyway?.

This would not usually be a common issue (and thankfully does not cause problems in the most reasonable scenario of creating a custom culture) but it is possible to run into the problem if you are modifying a DateTimeFormatInfo directly to use it. So it is a good one to point out. :-)
