Time Ontology in OWL review

i read through

Time Ontology in OWL

not being an expert in linked data nor time/data topics, much of it is 
hard for me to comment on, however there do seem to be a number of 
issues surrounding time zones, as the spec itself mentions in 

One thing that's not taken into account, however, afaict, is when DST is 
introduced or discontinued for a given area, eg. it was just 
discontinued in Egypt this year.

I also find myself wondering why so much effort is going into creating 
ontological terms for much of this when it seems that expressing things 
as incremental time or looking up things in the Olson database would 
reduce the computation needed.
