[Bug 11626] The specification says "Time-zone offsets differ based on daylight savings time." In that case, how would you represent a time w/o date in a specific time zone? For example, how would you code "Online tech support chat hours are <time datetime="09:00:00-0

It's not clear to me exactly what you are asking for. Do you mean that the
browser should work out what the time zone is in a particular part of the
world, then apply that time zone to the given time, then convert it to the
user's time zone for display? If so, that's probably more complicated than we
would want to put into a browser. Time zones vary based on the whim of
governments, I don't see how we could spec it.
