# UAs may display the time in whatever time zone is appropriate for the user,
# but should be clear to the user that the time is globally defined, not
# time-zone dependent. The submitted date and time must be in the UTC timezone.

I think offering a way of selecting the timezone for the field's display
as part of the datetime widget would not only convey this, but also be
helpful for trans-time-zone planning.

Not that it should be in WF2, of course, but just a thought.
