Nick, Alain, Erik and other implementers,

Could you please comment on adjust-dateTime-to-timezone() and JSON 
conversion so we can get these topics completed on our telecon?

Does 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.

On JSON conversion, there are numerous exceptions that I've raised for the 
content currently in the wiki.  Are any implementations currently doing 
JSON conversion?  \
If so, are you handling these, and how? 
Do we need options available for how much information we generate into the 
XML (e.g. maybe someone doesn't care about putting the type or the reason 
for emptiness into the XML?)
