That's exactly the behavior i would like to have. From the server side 
it seems nice.

The bad is that Javascript Date objects are initialized with local time 
and prints local time (toString 
<https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Date/toString>). 
Web developers could expect the same behavior for date inputs and date 
objects.
