Templates in a location should get that regional time setting. Not the US. There are other time zones!

Thanks, Aaron. You can pass into PowerShell and REST the timezone you want your VM deployed as. I think the feedback to do this via the portal is also good.

I'm not convinced that the location of the Azure Data Center is a great basis for the default language, date format etc of the VM. Many use UTC. That said if you are in UK, Singapore, Australia, The current default of USA dates is the worst option. MDY is alien to all but the USA. So this idea has some merit.
A better option would be to ensure we have the ability to set these on creation of the VM. Both via the Portal and the ARM template.
