OK. My first reading of the example was that the time zone (... in use on the
east coast of the USA during daylight saving time) would be implied by the
given date-time literal, what is certainly not correct.

But as far as I can see, the only time zone that is relevant for this spec is
UTC, what perfectly corresponds with the lack of calendaring support in
ECMAScript. So the example may probably not confuse readers too much.

Sorry for the noise.
