I have no problem with changing "time zone" to "time zone offset" or "zone offset" (which of these two would you prefer?)

Honestly I don't see that as important. I prefer a more pragmatic approach, as for example in the above case: "zone offset" is clearly superior to "time zone" and it likely will be used in 1.1 as you point out. In less certain cases we should be less inclined to adopt the (still draft) 1.1 approach.
