RE: HTML Time Zone proposal

> Part of a locale includes a region designation which is a geographic component, so i would say that it's harder to remove location from locale and purely define a locale as a language and void of geography.

BCP-47 language tags fail some cases because you can't represent "Canadian English speaker in the United States".  It's being overloaded to represent things that aren't always a good fit.  I'd much prefer discrete language, region, Timezone, currency, etc fields.
