I18N-ISSUE-88: Local/floating date and time [HTML5-prep]

2.5.5.5 Global dates and times
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#global-dates-and-times

This defines a 'global date and time', which is the same as a 'local date and time', only with a time zone representation. I propose changing the 'local' value to use the term 'floating' (since it is not truly local). The term 'global' could remain. I would also suggest adding a reference to w3.org/TR/timezone (our note) to help users understand when to use which type.
