OK, but in lieu, do you think you could comment as an implementer on 
adjust-dateTime-to-timezone() behavior?

Curious whether your implementation will attach proper timezone based on 
whether daylight savings time is in effect during the date portion of the 
input?

For example, in pacific time zone, 2011-12-12T12:12:12 with no tz should 
become 2011-12-12T12:12:12-08:00, even if *right now* the processor would 
think the timezone is -07:00.

Similarly, 2011-05-05T12:12:12 should become 2011-05-05T12:12:12-07:00 
regardless of the current moment of time.

Likewise, if such dates do have a timezone in the input, then the timezone 
should be adjusted according to what the timezone will be in the current 
locale as of the date component of the input parameter.

Is this how your implementation works now?

Also, could you comment whether you have any interest in how the JSON 
conversion works?
