--- Comment #3 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Isn't this self-evident? If you convert a data type that corresponds to a
twenty-four hour period that doesn't specify a time zone into a data type that
corresponds to a single second that does specify a time zone, you're obviously
going to have to be careful.

I don't understand who you expect the warning given in comment 2 to help.
Anyone who is knowledgable enough to understand that warning is already going
to know to not screw it up, and those that aren't are highly unlikely to read
the spec, let alone understand the warning enough to make sure they avoid the
mistake.
