[webpayments] identify time zone dependent vs. independent cases [I18N-ISSUE-471]

Dear Webpayments,

This note is to forward a comment from the Internationalization (I18N) Working Group on your document "Web payments use cases" [1]. An additional comment will be sent under separate cover for tracking purposes.

This comment is located at [2] in Tracker:


As a general observation, some of the use cases contain time-bound elements. These can be limits on things like refunds or payments, such as 6.3.4. which might be tied to a specific time zone (so that you know the specific end time local to a specific location--since "May 15, 2015" ends at different times in different places). Others may be zone independent. Care should be used to identify cases that have a time zone dependence. See also:  http://www.org/TR/timezones 

Thanks (for I18N),

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
