In any case, the reason that there is more than one common format is because they're all preferred by some largeish group of people. Which one works best for you depends on how you think.

The point I was originally trying to make is that annoyance at people using a different style goes in both (all) directions.
Stylistic choices really should not count as a "mistake" anyways. As long as there is a simple way to translate between them, they won't be much of a problem in practice.
