Hi Mihkel,

If the format code contains month
(MMM or MMMM) and day of month (D or DD) the possessive name is
displayed, else (no D or DD code) the noun is displayed.

Where exactly is this going to be used -- Calc's date-formatted cells,
Writer's date-fields, ...?

Everywhere where a numeric date value is displayed using the number
formatter's month name codes, so yes, Calc's date-formatted cells,
Writer's date fields, Chart's dates, I presume also Impress' and Base's

And will it be strictly one way or the other, or will users be able to
choose which form (nominative/inflected) they want in a given context?
I ask because in Estonian both forms (and more :P ) could be used,
depending on sentence.

This feature does not inspect sentences, it relies solely on the date
format code of the number formatter, see above.
