RE: [Bug 1334] no implicit conversion between time zones

There is, perhaps, a misunderstanding behind this comment.
Implicit timezones are used in date/time arithmetic to allow
comparisons between date/times with and without timezones.  They are
supplied by the system for the operation and not stored in the
document or datamodel.  Thus, there is no issue re. more than
one implicit timezone stored in one or more documents or conversion
between them.  There is, at most, one implicit timezone for a query.

All the best, Ashok
