Since the time zone mechanism for dateTime expressions can do without  
reference to some external database, I don't think we need to impose  
UTC.

The main point here is that schema defines two different time scales,  
and that comparison of an untimezoned and a timezoned value isn't well- 
defined

(While I like the fact that every noun can be verbed in English, I  
have to say that "timezoned" and "untimezoned" sound awful.)
