You do not know that to be a fact, and if some of the more active people on
this list have their way, persons in positions to make such decisions will be
using this as a resource base.

I don't see anything wrong with including commentary on various actual and
proposed changes.  It is within the scope of this list, or at least not
totally irrelevant to time zoning.  That I voted for candidate X because I
liked his stand on non-time-zone issue Y is irrelevant to this list; opinions
on time zoning issues are not, have come from more people than just myself,
(you may note that I was replying to another proposal in my post) and are,
AFAIK, welcome from the people who run this list.
