If I understand it correctly, you mean something like this:
- The user has a list of possible values, for example:
- Then he can construct a date format by dragging the elements in a
rectangle/textfield and adding punctuation characters or static text.
- A "template" for that text is created, for example "%M %j, %Y"
I already had something like this in mind (specifically for pathauto)
and volunteer to code the front-end part.
