In UK (Ukraine) locale default date format does not match ISO.

WRONG: 'Січ','Лют','Бер','Кві','Тра','Чер', ...

VALID: 'січ.','лют.','бер.','квіт.','трав.','черв.' ...

because of the server tools that take a date - do not recognize its true

milestone: TBD1.8

To fix this, we're going to need to add a capability for the datepicker to differentiate between 'stand-alone' and 'format' month name abbreviations. It currently has only one property 'monthNamesShort' which is used for both headers (stand-alone) and formatting (format), despite the following code comment

monthNamesShort: [...], // For formatting

For more info, see

"Both month and day names may vary along two axes: the width and the context. The context is either format (the default), the form used within a date format string (such as "Saturday, November 12th", or stand-alone, the form used independently, such as in Calendar headers. The width can be wide (the default), abbreviated, or narrow. The latter is the shortest possible width: it is typically used in calendar headers."

It sounds like this isn't something that can be fixed with the current datepicker. If the datepicker actually should be using the other form in the UI, then please file a pull request. Thanks.
