The two-letter abbreviations of weekdays (So, Mo, Di, Mi, Do, Fr, Sa) are far more common in German than the three-letter ones used in Date::Language::German. Unless I have overlooked something that says they should always be three letters for easier substitutability of languages I'd vote for changing them.

It's also what OS locale implementations think it should be, at least on freebsd and linux (debian) systems: $ env LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 perl -MPOSIX=strftime -E 'say strftime "%a", 0,0,0,28,3-1,2016-1900,1' Mon $ env LC_ALL=de_DE.UTF-8 perl -MPOSIX=strftime -E 'say strftime "%a", 0,0,0,28,3-1,2016-1900,1' Mo
