How can I set the date format in Writer so that whenever I select
INSERT->FIELDS->DATE it will insert a hard
December 31, 1999 (for example) instead of the 12/31/99 which is totally
inappropriate for correspondence.

I wish too, have a configurable date format. I inspected a document created with the following ad-hoc date format:

        domingo, 1 de diciembre del 2013

The date is registered with the following local style, not available in the style list.

  <number:date-style style:name="N106">
   <number:day-of-week number:style="long"/>
   <number:text>, </number:text>
   <number:text> de </number:text>
   <number:month number:style="long" number:textual="true"/>
   <number:text> del </number:text>
   <number:year number:style="long"/>

The date field can't be saved in his fixed format as an automatic replaceable string of characters. I guess that the best approach is have a macro that inserts the date with the desired format and this macro is run when we create a paragraph with a style 'date', for instance.
