[swift-users] Decoding dates with dateDecodingStrategy

I had a question about date deserialization. If a container (or its sub-containers) has dates in multiple formats, is the best way to go about it to decode a string and then run each one through a custom date formatter?
It seems strange to me that dateDecodingStrategy is a top-level decoder concern rather than being part of an individual date decode method. In my custom init(from decoder: Decoder) methods, I want to put the knowledge in there instead of relying on something from outside to set it correctly. Maybe I am missing something?
Thanks as always for any insights you can share with me.
