With the dutch localization DATEVALUE accepts 1-jan-2011 and 1-mrt-2011
(correct dutch format) but not 1-mar-2011 (english US) regardless if I
set the standard language for the document to English US or not.

Only if I set the 'locale setting' to US does it accept 1-mar-2011.

I am trying make sense of some weird data format (2011MAR) which is
English based. To me that seems a common situation, and I would not want
to change the LO global localization settings as that changes all date
formats in the spreadsheet to english.

Couldn't datavalue take the locale of the formatted cell?

Or is there a better trick to ge this done?

The same probably holds for other localized conversions as well.
