Date display formats are not right across all the ESRI platforms. The default JSON format for a date time should be

    "fieldName": "DATE_FIELD_NAME",
    "visible": true,
    "isEditable": true,
    "label": "Date Field Name",
    "format": {
              "dateFormat": "shortDateLEShortTime",
              "timezone": "utc"‍‍‍

almost every other system in the IT industry has this as the default.

Instead we get 

    "fieldName": "DATE_FIELD_NAME",
    "visible": true,
    "isEditable": true,
    "label": "Date Field Name"

The default format is not specified and as a result is almost always forced into the American Date formats, it doesn't even conform with the ISO 8601 DATE AND TIME FORMAT
