2.5.5.5 Global dates and times
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#global-dates-and-times

The note on time zone offsets says in part: "...and the minutes component of
offsets of actual time zones is always either 00, 30, or 45." Really this is
arbitrary and prone to change. The total range of time zones also changes from
time to time. I would suggest inserting a "at the time this document was
published" caveat such that innocent readers are not caught by surprise by a
new 15 minute time zone offset or by more monkey business surrounding the IDL.
