Makes sense; goes from the largest units to the smallest. Curiously,
there was a Y2K problem. The original format was (yy)yy:mm:dd hh:mm:ss,
which would make the first group potentially ambiguous, either a date or
a time, if the optional first two digits were omitted, until
(20)23:11:30. Now the hyphens and colons show whether it is a date or a
AIUI, it is advised NOT to omit the first two digits, but in some cases
there is no choice. Since it only creates an ambiguity over a 100 year
interval, it's not as serious as the problem of going from '99' to '00'
was feared to be.
