creating a custom i18nc layer

I'm aware this community appears never to have been used, but since there are a handful of people watching it anyway, I thought I'd give it a go, since I don't think this question would get answered in the 'make your journal look pretty' s2 communities.

I'm trying to create an en_GB i18nc layer (you can see it here, hopefully - i just overrode the date formats, nothing else). Basically I just want correct (British, that is, so 25/12/00 instead of 12/25/00) date formats (and 24 hour time) on all styles, not just ones which choose to allow me the option of customising date formats (my preferred style doesn't).

The problem is it just doesn't work. I have British English selected on http://www.livejournal.com/manage/siteopts.bml, and I have "Default" selected from the Language dropdown on http://www.livejournal.com/customize/style.bml ("English" doesn't work either). But the layer just doesn't seem to be functioning. Any clues, or is this sort of thing simply not possible? If it isn't, how would I go about contributing an en_GB i18nc layer to the 'official' i18nc layers already present so that it would function?
