Quoting from the docstring of trunk/Lib/email/utils.py -> formatdate()

"We cannot use strftime() because that honors the locale and RFC 2822 requires that day and month names be the English abbreviations."

So yes, I do agree that email.utils.formatdate() should be used instead of time.strftime() to remove duplicate codes and be compliant with RFC.
Removing previous patch and submitting another.
