Problem is that too many spreadsheet users do not know what a
spreadsheet date/time is and how it differs from a text such as
"16/07/2015" which is not a date by any means.

Actually it is if you add the pattern to Options > Language Settings > Languages > Date Acceptance 
I had previously added D/M/Y and "16/07/2015" (without the quotes) was perfectly recognized as a 
date. To keep the formatting you must also adapt the cell formatting.
