I regretted that omission as well. The following code creates a small
palette which will display the co-ordinates for. It will also show the
date if you are hovering over a DateListPlot.

CreatePalette[
 Dynamic[Replace[
   MousePosition[
    "Graphics"], {a_,
     b_} :> {DateString[
      a, {"DayShort", "-", "MonthNameShort", "-", "Year"}], a, b}]],
 WindowTitle -> "Graph Coordinates"]
