2012-11-26T15:34:51Z is not a very friendly presentation. I agree that a
presentation that is similar to that ("2012-11-26 07:34:51 PST"?) can be
useful, removing ambiguity from dates and times, but that usually isn't exactly
ISO 8601.

The question is how to mark this up. This isn't "locale", though, as there may
be many different formatting "patterns" that are common or acceptable in a
given language/region/culture. This makes it a preference that we will
(eventually) need to provide for. 

The ECMAScript extension is a useful reference here:
