Question How do you change the date formating from dd/MM/yyyy to MM/dd/yyyy?
Answer The following work on XWiki Enterprise 1.2 M2:

The easy part:
Open the class editor
Change class to XWiki.XWikiPreferences
Add new property Name: dateformat Type: String class
Select Object editor
Choose XWiki.XWikiPreferences[0]: XWiki.DefaultSkin
Scroll to the bottom and fill out the dateformat field with: MM/dd/yyyy
The hard part:
Since a lot of the date formating is hardcoded into the skins, you will have to go through all the .vm file in the skins folder.
Edit the $xwiki.formatDate(xxx, "dd/MM/yyyy") to $xwiki.formatDate(xxx)

After this is done, you can easily use Object editor to GLOBALLY change all the the date format.
