I think the comment has a point - there is something untoward here about 
comparing dateTime or date with no time zone with one that does have a time 
zone.  (I would really like Eric to confirm or refute this in case I've 
misread or not fount the right place to read in the XSF/F&O docs.)

The solution is change the tests.  If we want to be in picky mode, its the 
result that change,; if we want to be relaxed, change the data so comparisons 
are more than 14 hours apart.
