wait ... "enabling QL1S as a type for date/time formats" ?
A quick search for "QLatin1String" in qdatetime.h and qlocale.h shows a
total of zero matches.  We have QStringView overloads, but not QL1S.

Not that I have any objection to adding such overloads, but they can't be
claimed as qt5-era wins of viewification.
