Summary Provide commands to display uppercased dates

Currently, \MakeUppercase cannot be used because it needs expandable commands and datetime's \displaydate and the like aren't expandable. Hence, it could be nice for datetime to provide macros such as \displayuppercasedate that display date uppercased versions of dates.

No mwe.tex


This is not achievable in datetime.sty as the underlying \formatdate that governs the date style is robust. However, this ability is available in datetime2.sty which replaces the now obsolete datetime.sty as datetime2.sty makes commands like \today expandable.
