Richard,

http://www.w3.org/TR/timezone/#d2e382
made me think of the work done in XML Schema Patterns for Databinding.
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-patterns/#pattern-DateTimeElement

The test done for the interop report was an echo test, read the input with
the toolkit, and echo back the value retrieved.

The results of the tests are there:
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/databinding/edcopy/report/basic.html
For the datatime, it starts here:
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/databinding/edcopy/report/basic.html#DateTimeAttribute01

DateTimeElement04, 05 and 06 demonstrate issues with TZ-less dates.
Same issues with Y10K or 3 digits or less (or dates before 1970 in some
cases for values mapped to epoch).

Those are real datapoints for giving advice on TZ :)
