Test:SBR1-echoDate (T96)

According to XML Schema, the type "xsd:dateTime" should be
normalized according to the REVERSE of the sign of the hours
indicated.  The current description performs directly the
arithmetic indicated instead of reversing them.

Strictly speaking, the test itself could spell out a test 
semantic that says, "in this test case, 'normalize' means
perform the arithmetic adjustments as manifested by the
unnormalized form", and there would be nothing "wrong"
about the test.

But the suggestion here is that it may be better to simply
follow what has been defined in XML Schema date-time normalization
as doing otherwise does not serve much of a point, and actually
tends to be confusing when the description does not indicate
a different way to normalize dateTime values from the way
specified by XML Schema.

Therefore, assuming the above correction of interpretation to
align with XML Schema's specification, Node C's response 
for both T53 and T96 should then be changed from:
<return xsi:type="xsd:date">1956-10-18T15:20:00Z</return>
<return xsi:type="xsd:date">1956-10-19T05:20:00Z</return>
