--- Comment #5 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Could you elaborate on what exactly people are doing? I am having trouble
coming up with a viable situation in which you'd take a date-without-timezone
and convert it to a second-with-timezone if you don't know the time zone of the
day. Do you have any pointers to mailing list posts where you've tried to
explain this to authors? I'd love to see what they're saying in response, as
that would help me craft text (and figure out where to put that text) to
maximise the impact of a warning we put in. I don't think the suggestion in
comment 2 would work; I barely understand it, let alone someone who is likely
to run into this problem.
