Perhaps there is some merit in making the usage text more complete ?

For example, "date --help" does show the exact output of --iso-8601,
--rfc-2822 and --rfc-3339 .

Attached are two draft patches, one adds the information at the end of
the "--help" screen, the other inside the "--terse" parameter.
(these will also be propagated to the man-pages).

What do you think ?
