Normalizing to MySQL sounds pretty unusual, I'd normalize it to ISO8601.

But I think the Python-module has a different problem here: the
Event-Timestamp attribute is marked in the dictionary as type date.
Python has a datetime class. Wouldn't it be better to pass a datetime
object to the Python script instead of a stringified version of the date?
