In the simplest case, the UI for type=datetime doesn't need to be 
different from the UI for type=datetime-local. Any differences, IMHO, 
would be just accessible from (e.g.) a context menu (to allow the user to 
actually pick a time zone). Google Calendar's event editor page has a 
pretty good type=datetime widget (though in their case it has two 
widgets combined into one, for start and end).
