Bug Description

[Impact]

(on the phone) the menu title for the date time indicator displays the current day of the week instead of "Upcoming".

[Test case]

pull down the date time indicator menu from the indicators panel, observe that the menu title text (appears in large text just below the panel) displays the current day of the week.

[Regression potential]

should be none, this is a simple text replacement.

[Other Info]
this change is only applicable to Ubuntu touch

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeAndDate#phone-menu>: "The menu header should be 'Upcoming', parallel to 'Incoming' for messages."

This is by design once the menu has been pulled down. For example in the spec at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeAndDate#Indicator see this image: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TimeAndDate?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=phone-indicator-clock.png

Now, as far as /before/ the indicator is pulled down, I don't know if the title should still be the weekday, or if it should change to "Date Time" when not pulled down. Right now we don't have a mechanism to know the difference, so for 13.10 at least it's probably a one-or-the-other choice for implementation reasons.

Reassigning to mpt for design guidance on what's preferable for 13.10 and/or beyond. Mpt, please reassign to me when you're done.

John has persuaded me that the weekday should not be put in the header. Instead we'll add it to the date item, which will be slightly more consistent with the PC too.
