"Week Starts On" Default = Sunday

Description

General Settings:

Is it crazy, after 5000+ years of the week starting on Sunday, to have the default setting Monday?

I find it mildly irritating to have to remember to fix that setting. It almost seems like some odd developer had an agenda?

For me it's always started on Monday. That's why Saturday and Sunday are called the weekEND...

Wow, you learn something new everyday!! "Some years ago, the International Organisation for Standardisation specified Monday as the first day. " -London Telegraph.

I had no idea.

This map (http://chartsbin.com/view/41671) makes it look like half the world has to change the start day from the default!

I never did figure out if it was the first ISO 8601 in 1988 that changed it to Monday or when?
