Depending on how exactly we handle that, I might or might not agree. If we
can leave it out of the BNF and out of the feature description, but put in
some sort of blanket statement that certain feature are not necessarily in
violation but are discouraged, and a receiver is not obligated to recognize
them, I could go along with that.

I really think that's a stretch. If you want to indicate geographical
locale, I would think you would use some legitimate geographic vocabulary
rather than indicate a time zone.
