LO Calc ignores OS "short date" format

On the Region and Language page of my Windows control panel, I have chosen English (United States) and customized the “Short date” format to the ISO 8601 format yyyy-MM-dd as shown here:

MS Excel supports spreadsheet cells set to use the OS regional short date format. Notice the asterisk and footnote here:

MS Excel Format Cells

and so MS Excel displays these cells thusly:

MS Excel Display

But when opening such an XLS file, LibreOffice Calc disregards any custom short date format. Notice there is no asterisk here:

LO Calc Format Cells

and instead displays such cells in the traditional USA format M/d/yyyy format, like this:

LO Calc Display

Okay, the obvious work-around is to forget about the asterisk-ed setting in MS Excel, and instead forcibly select the yyyy-MM-dd format (without the asterisk). This would ensure portability of my XLS file between MS Excel and LO Calc, but then it would disregard the preference of other users to whom I might send it, who would have their OS “short date” format set differently from mine. Is there any way to get LO Calc to respect the OS “short date” setting?

Short answer: No.
Long answer: it’s an RFE.

Thanks, erAck. Of course, I am disappointed that I can’t do what I want right away, but pleased that I am not the only one to notice this shortfall and request that it be remedied.
