All right, I'll open it back up for that suggestion (I've changed the title accordingly) and let the docs folks decide.  The most useful link would be one to the relevant Windows documentation, since that's the hardest one to find.

Although this scheme avoids the problem of having to maintain a list of 'extra' format codes, it does have one of the same problems that doing so would have: the supported codes may change from OS version to OS version, and do we maintain the links accordingly?  The mitigating factor is that I don't think the supported codes do change much.
