Date.Format method should take parameter like datetime.format does

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

Why can't we directly format dates to strings in apex?  Instead we have to do this workaround: https://developer.salesforce.com/forums?id=906F00000008wZ3IAI

Please update date.format() to take custom formats (such as 'dd-MMM-yy') instead of making us translate into a date/time first.
